Signs of Spring

This year the Nature Group is recording the first signs of spring for the Nature's Calendar survey established by the Woodland Trust. Today a couple of Colt's-foot plants have bean spotted which is one of the signs we are looking out for. For this information to become valuable we have to record the signs year after year and compare the results. This data helps show whether spring is beginning earlier or later than in previous years.
