ST JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH, WASPERTON
A SANCTUARY FOR WILDLIFE

Updated May 2018

Blossoms in May
Are not good some say.

Flowers in May
Fine cocks of Hay.

These sayings refer to mild winters and spring which accelerate blossoms or flowers to appear early in May. The same process is supposed to occur with hay in June. Logically the results should be very good and indeed achieve a 70% rating over 15 years.

The month of May seeks warmth to exchange for bread.

This just confirms the above two adages. Now May is often a good month. Usually the first few weeks give us northerly airstreams with some anti- cyclones. Not many Westerlies in May, from the 21st to the end, fine dry weather, high pressure and Southerlies . Yes please.

We are still in that lovely time, is April the best month or is it May do you think ? Both you say and I can’t argue with that. The wild flowers are looking very well now, the primroses and cowslips have really come on. I’m hoping that by the end of May into June we will see a mass of colour from the growth from the seeds sown last Autumn. Fingers crossed.

Jobs to do: yes keep an eye on the bird boxes to watch for nesting activity, also repair the bug boxes. They had a bashing this last winter, no doubt many bugs will have suffered. Good news about one hedgehog in the Village. Ann and Neil found  rather weak looking little soul in their garden last month and put some cat food down which he or she devoured. This continued and was seen to recover. The very cold spells which we had must have made life very difficult for all the small mammals including the bats. We will see no doubt. The grass cutting has begun, thanks again to the volunteers. Summer is almost upon us. How lovely.

Thanks for your support.
