    Noticing the first few bees of the year this week in the NW. Does the heart good to see them emerging.

    Hi All, new to the forum.

    I can see lots of birds having difficulties today, Storm Kathleen. Some birds hopping from their nests, in very windy weather. Are these the mostl;y hatchlings?

    would they still be in their nests in April?

    What kind of damage are done to bird numbers during a storm like this, any data? I have googled Storm Isha, but i am not finding the correct phrase to ask.

    Well it’s official, the first May over without noticing a single May fly in the house. My abiding childhood memory was of the house being overrun by them every year and sticky traps hung everywhere. How times have changed!

    There were far fewer here in May than usual; but they were seen in quite big numbers from early April. They might be in for a name-change!
