Today marks the first day of Summer in Britain.
It is May Day today, my ancestors call Beltane, the first day of British Summer. Although there is still a tinge of cold in the background it was a bright beautiful day today. I am back to blogging.
The trees are now manifesting their verdant greenery, and every animal is thinking about procreation. I can safely say that the land is wide awake and it is party time here in Britain in the realm of nature.
Here is a live link to a nest of peregrine falcons at Nottingham Trent University. Better than watching moronic television or hanging out in Facebook, this is a live view of nature raising young. Two chicks are hatched, a third egg is still to hatch. The mother is currently keeping their young warm, the father is out hunting. There are two live feeds of this peregrine falcon family. The site warns that this is unedited live footage so expect the raw aspects of nature to be on display occasionally when mice and other prey is brought in by the parents to feed their young.
