The Heather Hills, 1918


Observed any wildlife in the village recently? Recent sightings for early April include:
- Barn Owl on farmland by the river.
- Buzzards have been very busy, mewling over Wickhay and Spring Close.
- Red Kite seen over farmland below ‘Bassetts’
- An exciting sight of the rare Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was seen at Pheasanthouse Farm, along with a Linnet, a Treecreeper and Bullfinch. These were all seen on the same morning, between 9-10am.
- The Wood Anemones are well advanced and the Bluebells are just showing colour in Holybred Wood.
- Brimstone butterfly risked the weather in the last week of March and as this is being written- we have just had a hail shower!
