Summer

It has been a long drawn out spring but summer is well underway now. Meadows are bursting with life as bees and butterflies flit from flower to flower gathering pollen. Many of us will head to the coast for a few days relaxation and hopefully catch a beautiful sunset or walk on our sandy beaches beside scurrying waders. Seabirds are busy breeding on our sea-cliffs now, whilst puffins are undoubtedly the nations favourite, don't overlook the other auks like razorbills with their fantastic beaks. Up on our mountains and on our peatlands dragonflies and mountain hares can be seen basking in the summer warmth.
