Nature and wildlife November


Nature and wildlife November

November - an overview

Shorter days and weaker sun mean lower temperatures, we can experience the first signs of winter; heavy rain gales and snow are all features of the month. On cold still days mist and fog are characteristic of November.

What to see

Winter food is becoming scarce for wildlife and berries such as Holly, Rowan Hawthorn will be welcome for birds. As the nights are getting longer familiar garden birds such Garden birds such as the Blackbird, Blue Tit and Robin will be more active at dawn and just before dusk in readiness for the long night ahead. This is a good time to feed birds as they will appreciate a meal. This will encourage other birds such as Long Tailed Tits to visit. Redwing and Fieldfare which have migrated from Northern Europe to winter in Britain can be seen now.

Later in the month when the tree canopy has mostly gone is a good time to go looking for birds, if you look carefully you might see the Great Spotted Woodpecker and look for Treecreeper and Nuthatch which move about the trunk and branches searching for grubs.

Plants are in their dormant stage and there are very few signs of growth at this time of year, Fungi should still be seen early in the month.

Key dates:

Redwings and Fieldfares seen 19 Nov 2007
27 November 2010 First snowfall, about an inch. It is over ten years since it snowed in November in Haworth.
