A wildlife diary of the western Isle Of Wight's beautiful countryside!

After giving the garage and good Spring-clean, followed by a trip to the tip, Carole and I spent the afternoon at the Walter's Copse National Trust Nature Reserve.
I love the way in which the rides are being broadened. The Primroses are already spreading outwards. This is going to be so good in a month or so's time!!
At ground level the Primroses were beautiful, whilst up in the treetops there was an orchestra of bird sounds. The soloist was a nearby Mistle Thrush and a mewing Buzzard soaring over the treetops brought a dramatic contrast to the symphony!
Best of all, though, was one of the smallest animals - my first Bombylius discolor Bee-flies...and they deserve a post of their own.....to be continued!
