March 2017


As we come to the end of March, spring here at Swanton Novers NNR is definitely on the way. Over the last week, the wood anemones have started to flower, the bluebell leaves are emerging from the woodland ground and sections of the rides are carpeted with primroses. In addtion, the 

birds are singing  merrily away, flitting from branch to branch and puddles and ponds have also been put to good use by frogs and can be found supporting clusters of gelatinous frog spawn - a sure sign that spring is on its way.

Frog Spawn The static detectors were deployed twice this month and with the weather warming up we are starting to pick up some bat activity. 

We have also been busy preparing for our Wild about Swanton Community and Wildlife Day which will be taking place at the Swanton Novers Village Hall on Saturday 6th of May 2017 from 10.30 am to 3 pm. More information about the event and the guided walks that we are running on the day can be found here
