Nature Notes – August 2019

Not much happens on the meadow in August; the hay is gone and the volunteers are taking a break, so I took a walk around the meadow in the evening to see what was around.

Remember, most of what lives and grows on the meadow just turned up, or was waiting under the soil for an opportunity to grow. All you need to do to let nature thrive is give it a chance, whether you’ve got an acre or a window box, whatever habitat you can add will help.

It’s been about a year since I took over writing these Nature Notes, and I think I’m repeating myself a fair bit, so this will be the last one for now. I’ll still post interesting sightings and share what you’ve seen. Keep enjoying the meadow and its residents and don’t forget the little, buzzing, flying, creeping and crawling things, there are a lot more of them than you think!
