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.
