February already? Where has the time gone? Winter has been another milder affair so far this year it seems, a few weeks of colder weather, but nothing long-lasting. Noticed an adult newt at the bottom of the pond a week ago, pretty early to come out of hibernation perhaps?
Local wildlife around Uckfield includes some winter thrushes hanging on to the British winter, woodpeckers are now drumming a lot which is great to hear, and buzzards soaring around above the outskirts of the town and over the wooded areas.
