December: photographs of the month
Charlotte Armitage , 08/01/2018
During December we received 234 records from 126 recorders - that’s more people recording this month than in November so a big thankyou to you all! We have started receiving numerous reports on the first signs of spring, please keep them coming. There has been another great selection of photos to choose from this month. Here are our favourites.
- We received the earliest frog spawn record since 2014. The date was 3 December from Cornwall where we would expect this event to occur earlier than northern parts of the UK.
- We had 43 records of bare pedunculate oak.
- You also sent us some extremely early signs of spring with 19 records for first flowering of snowdrops and lesser celandine. Have you seen any flowering near you?
A huge thank you for all your records over December regardless of whether or not you uploaded photos. Every record helps scientists discover more about how UK wildlife is responding to a changing climate.
