Bluebells are synonymous with May as they spread their lovely shimmering blue carpet usually overhung with fresh green foliage. They can be found in abundance at most local woods such as Evenley Northamptonshire; Foxholes nature reserve near chipping Norton; Manor Farm Adderbury and Horley Railway, which are all Berks Bucks and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust reserves.
There is also an abundance of other things to look out for; don’t forget your binoculars, as our summer feathered visitors such as black caps, the diminutive whitethroat, willow warblers and chiff chaffs should be there in abundance and very vocal. May is also a great month to listen to the dawn chorus, so set the alarm clock for an pre-dawn rising and head into your nearest wood or copse to marvel at natures operatic cacophony.
