The views from my office for today!
.
As beautiful as this seems, there’s a very upsetting reason that I’m here. The recent fire on The Roaches (which is still ongoing) has led the the road which goes around the area being closed for some time. Myself and another @staffswt volunteer were manning the closure at this point all day.
.
It gave us an opportunity to explain to the people that we met why they should not be driving/cycling/walking through the area, and why it is still so incredibly dangerous.
.
The peat moorland is still smouldering and flare-ups are still occurring. These can quickly develop into the kind of large scale wildfire we’ve already seen and which has caused so much heartbreaking devastation.
.
It is likely that the area will remain closed over the coming bank holiday weekend. Please do not travel to the area as you will most likely be turned away, and unfortunately be disappointed. This is for your own safety, and to allow fast access for @staffsfire should an increase in presence be required.
.
The moorland will recover, but it will be a long process and will require a lot of help.
.
Remember, carelessness causes fires.

We love the sunflowers that have appeared at home!
.
We’ve not down any of the seeds, so we think the picky sparrows have thrown them to the ground from the feeders!

Did you know the pleasant smell that fills the air which accompanies the first rain after an extended period of warm, dry weather is called petrichor? 🌱 #learnsomethingeveryday #nature #fresh #amazing #green #botanical #petrichor 🌱

Nooooooo! I saw this starling egg under the trees at the back of my mother-in-laws garden. The birds were going crazy around it (crazier than normal for starlings). I rang the @rspb_love_nature wildlife team. The sad news is there’s nothing that can be done.
.
The birds may have rejected it if they thought it wasn’t going to hatch, or it may have fallen out in which case it’s unlikely to hatch even if I found the nest and put the egg back 😢😢😢
.
I’ve left it where it is, so at least the other birds will have a meal.
.
There is a hatched egg nearby though and lots of starlings, so at least it’s only one bird. It’s little consolation though.
.
Heartbreaking 😢
