Do one thing
Conserve water for the summer months ahead. Install a water butt or recycle your bathwater for watering plants.
What to look for
If you’re lucky you may see glow worms on hedgebanks and along woodland rides, especially in limestone areas.
Did you know
The smallest reserve managed by the Wildlife Trust is in Norfolk: Hethel Old Thorn, a 13th century hawthorn.
Habitat of the month: Meadows
Spot butterflies and early summer flowers in these wildlife havens. Traditional meadows are cut for hay in summer to provide winter food for animals. This management leads to a great diversity of plants and animals. Just before they are cut is a great time to visit as they are at their best.
Photo opportunity: Butterflies
Butterflies are abundant now. Spot them early in the morning whilst they rest with wings open to warm up in the sun. If you cannot sneak up close try using a telephoto lens and a fast shutter speed.
