November: photographs of the month

Charlotte Armitage , 06/12/2017

During November we received 619 records from 116 recorders, this is slightly less than October so please keep sending in your sightings. There are still lots of things to record this time of year; mainly bare shrubs and trees but we have had some reports of flowering snowdrops! There has been another great selection of photos to choose from and here are a few of our favourites.

Your records in November:

  • This month we received the earliest recording of lesser celandine first flowering since our dataset began in 2000! The observed date was the 5 November the only year that was close to this was in 2005 when we had a record on 9 November.
  • We had 39 records for bare silver birch.
  • 14 records for fieldfare first recorded were received the latest being on the 28 November, will we get any later arrivals in December?
