Natural History Group ~ updateBridgwater-Taunton Canal : Wednesday, 25th AprilOn this showery day only five of the Group opted to walk. Those who did were surprised to hear so much birdsong, notably from Wrens, Blackbirds, Reed Warblers, a Song Thrush and a Cetti's Warbler. We also saw Swallows, Moorhens, Mallards, Canada Geese, Mute Swans, a Raven and a Great Spotted Woodpecker. Plants emerging at the canalside included Yellow Waterlily, Frogbit, Yellow Iris, Water Forget-me-not, Fools Watercress and two striking Sedge species. It was too early for Dragonflies and too cool for butterflies but as the summer progresses more variety and colour can be expected.If you are interested in finding out more about us, please ring me on 01278 431853. If I’m not around, please leave a message and I will endeavour to get back to you.
Note: In all cases before joining a group for the first time please telephone the group leader.
