This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Saturday, March 12


Driving to school this morning to help out with a gardening detail. A Buzzard was being mobbed by a Crow, don't get many sightings on the estate. A couple of 7 Spotted Ladybirds were rescued from the kids whilst gardening. Driving home and parking up saw my first butterfly of the year with a splendid male Brimstone flying along the edge of Shenley Wood in the sunshine. Finally it looks like Blue Tits are nesting again in the back garden.


  1. Yes,I've seen about 6 Brimstones and a Peacock today, lots of 7 Spots and a few Bees including the small solitary ones that burrow into the soil. Amazing what a bit of sun can do.

  2. I think spring has finally sprung.
    Had a Small Tortoiseshell in the garden today, the frogs are spawning, and a few Ladybirds moving around too.
    Great time of the year.
