Insects, Spiders, Arable Plants and Birds

Diary of Natural Environment In and Around Wimpole

There’s been a wide variety of mating insects around and it makes photography easier as they have their minds on other things and not on escaping. It also fits in with easy food for the nesting birds !

The male of the Nursery  Web Spiders presents the female with a ‘gift wrapped fly’ before mating, a distraction technique?

More flowers have appeared. I found, forget me nots, and field pansies in the arable fields and plenty more Red Campions

Insects generally are now appearing at a good rate, there’s always something new to see. One of the pleasures of walking as opposed to running, is having the time to stop, look around and note what you see.

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
