February: photographs of the month
Charlotte Armitage , 08/03/2018
During February we received 110 photographs. We really enjoy looking through your lovely images so please keep sending them in with your observations. Thanks, too, to everyone that has recorded this month - we’ve had 650 records from 430 of you.
- Our most recorded event was frogspawn first seen with 108 records.
- We had our first record of colt’s-foot first flowering on the 3 February in Dorset, which is earlier than expected.
- The early insect records have continued with 59 in total and include ladybirds, red admiral, and brimstone butterflies.
So far we haven’t had any records of lilac, wood anemone or willow warbler so we expect to receive records about these soon. Keep an eye out.
A huge thank you for all your records over February regardless of whether or not you uploaded photos. Every record helps scientists discover more about how UK wildlife is responding to a changing climate.
At the end of spring a report will be published on the website documenting what your records show when compared to weather trends.
