Spring Beech Leaves by Alyson Fennell
After months of being wrapped up and hunkered down wildlife goes in to overdrive. It’s a time of building, mating, growing and leaving home.
Here are some ideas of wild things to do this spring…
Cycle along the dappled shade of the Tarka Trail and take a picnic to our Meeth Quarry nature reserve.
Listen, look and spot
Listen and look for the first cuckoos to return to Dartmoor at our Emsworthy Mire nature reserve.
Look for dippers foraging for food in the tumbling water of Cricklepit Mill’s leat, right in the heart of urban Exeter.
Spot the first fritillary butterflies of the year at Devon Wildlife Trust’s Marsland nature reserve.
