March 2023: wildlife, from the Somerset Levels

March 1st 2023. Spring at last, after one of the driest months recorded in the past 30 years, so we are told. We must surely be used to every period in our current years as being the strangest, wettest, or driest, or just different to every other period. Whether our wildlife is able to adjust as easily as print, is certainly not the case. Each year brings a continuing diminution of the number of species and increase among species reaching towards critical status.
