Nature and wildlife June


Nature and wildlife June

June - an overview

Swallow ChicksJune heralds the start of summer and is a month where nature really gets going. Parent birds can be seen feeding their young who will soon be leaving the nest, wildflowers are abundant. Most trees will be in full leaf Hawthorn also known as May hedge will still be flowering in early June dependent on how cold spring has been.

June 21st is the Midsummer Solstice and our longest hours of daylight, you can take a 24 hour time-lapse of the day here... it also marks the official arrival of summer.

What to see

Early in the month some of the flowers you can see are; Bistort, Bluebells, yellow fields full of Meadow Buttercup, Cotton Grass on the moors. Later on Foxgloves, Birds-foot-trefoil, Dog-rose, Yellow Iris and Bilberry are flowering.

Meadow PipitIf the weather is warm early in June you might see Damselflies such as Common Blue and Large Red which are usually first to appear. Later in the month if the weather is warm Dragonflies should begin to appear. This can be later if the weather is cold and wet. Birds will be busy feeding their young and eventually coaxing them to leave the nest.
