Nature and wildlife July


Nature and wildlife July

July - an overview

LightningJuly can be our warmest month but we can expect to get heavy rain and thunderstorms.

What to see

During this month Dragonfly and Damselflies should be around, when depends on how warm the weather is. Usually first to appear are Damselflies, the Large Red and Common Blue are often the first to be seen.

Birds have been busy rearing their young most of them will have left the nest by now.

Early in the month some of the flowers you can see are Foxgloves, Birds-foot-trefoil, Dog-rose and Yellow Iris, later in the month Common Spotted Orchid and Heather. Bilberry will be ripenenig and ready to pick at early in the month.

Key dates:

July 2nd 2009: Bilberries are ripe on Haworth moor.
July 13th 2009: Bog Asphodel beginning to flower at Penistone.

Jonas Bradley wrote in his notebook:
