Moseley Green and Brandricks Green Wildlife Survey

Grid Ref SO 637 088

 

It is the time of year for us to collect data in our Wildlife Surveys.

Well... It was very overcast with a strong wind and we did not see a single butterfly at Moseley Green although a few were seen at Brandricks Green! So, we concentrated on checking the wildlife flowers we had planted last year.

 

It is the time of year for the Foxgloves to flourish.

 

The wild Strawberries we planted last year are looking good.
