Wildlife Calendar- April

Frogs

What’s happening this month?

After a long hard winter, nature suddenly bursts into life!

Frogs and toads start pairing up, with loud croakings to be heard on mild evenings as they make their way back to their favourite ponds.

The epic journey made by small birds, some weighing only as much as a pound coin is finally over when they are seen across the skies of Fife. It’s strange to think that the familiar swallow nesting in our sheds have flown beside giraffes and lions only a few months ago.

Hibernation is one of the great wonders of nature and bats, bees, butterflies and hedgehogs will be emerging from their long sleep looking for food and mates.

The date all these things start happening is very important, as it gives an idea of how the climate and seasons are changing- so please let Fife Nature know of your sightings by completing a biological recording form.
