Whilst the birds at @BibbeysWildFarm are left to breed in peace I will be turning my attention to recording and sharing the variety of flowers, insects and other wildlife that can be found across the farmland 😎🚜💚🌍 (Images from 2021)

It felt like the Spring Wheatear story wasn’t quite over & sure enough 1 was in a dingle at @BibbeysWildFarm this morning, not exactly where I would expect one! Late news from yesterday was a Painted Lady on a pollen & nectar mix, the 11th butterfly species of 2022 on the farms

It was a very special night for me at last night’s fabulous @WestMidBirdClub AGM! I got to catch up with inspirational speaker & commentator @MarkAvery & met Graham Evans (@ChasewaterWild1) for the 1st time since he inspired me to do what I do today, back in 1987! Thanks Graham

Just imagine if all food was farmed like this! It’s a learning curve and we have so much to learn, but it’s a start. Food for nature, space for nature and feeding people. It is possible! @GeorgeMonbiot @BenGoldsmith

After an early start, to enjoy #InternationalDawnChorusDay along the dingles at @BibbeysWildFarm, it was great to find another Yellow Wagtail & 2 Wheatear on a bird food plot at Oatenfields The highlight was watching 5+ Yellowhammer feeding in one of Breach’s new field corners

I Had a fantastic time doing my bit for the Birmingham & Black Country in the #CityNatureChallenge today Plenty of variety at @BibbeysWildFarm and a gorgeous male Yellow Wagtail that briefly dropped into horse paddocks at Oatenfields was my 77th bird species on the farms in 2022

Great to see you Chris and thanks for attending and we share your enthusiasm, truly a great partnership 😀
It was an absolute honour to represent @WestMidBirdClub and witness the official launch of the inspirational @wittonlodge Eco Hub. The event opened and closed with the truly sensational @BirminghamOpera and my goose bumps are only just starting to go down! Well done to all! 👌

Still 10+ Brambling at @BibbeysWildFarm on Sunday (24th), mainly female. Will any stay into May? Great to see a Common Whitethroat setting up territory in one of the new field corners and Lesser Whitethroat became the 76th species that I have recorded on the farms this year

Congratulations Mary after all your hard work and just how quickly would the planet heal and nature recover, for the good of everyone’s future, if all leaders on earth had the qualities of @CarolineLucas? 👍👌🌈
There has been so much interest since the GCSE was announced last Thursday. Thanks to everyone who sent such supportive messages. A society that loves and works for nature would change so much. GCSE IN NATURAL HISTORY CONFIRMED @CarolineLucas @ocrexams invidious.fdn.fr/6IyjuXEG4dw
