Interview with Carol Lodge of Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust

Hi everyone

On the show today we heard from Carol Lodge who is the Conservation and Planning Officer for Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

Carol told us that at this time of year the birds are getting busy and the dawn chorus is starting to get more noisy! Birds are currently starting to build nests, particulary in wetland areas.

It's still important to leave bird feed out and remember to keep your bird feeders clean. Dried seeds seeds are popular with most birds.

Carol also pointed out that if you have a pond in your garden you might start seeing frog spawn - even lizards have been recently spotted!

And of course, April is the time when lots of plants begin to flower, especially bluebells. Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust are running a series of bluebell walks at various locations on the 25th April, 29th April, 6th May and the 9th May. A minimum donation of £2 per person is asked and bluebells will be experienced at their most wonderful.

For more information on these walks, and for everything else to do with the Wildlife Trust visit www.hertswildlifetrust.org.uk.
