Midsummer Sunrise Walk

A tawny owl was hooting loudly as twenty villagers gathered at 4am on the Lower Green for this year’s Sunrise Walk.

No torches were needed as the sky was already lightening.   By the time the Observatory at Upper Winchendon was reached, the sun was blazing away above the horizon. The views all around were magnificent and the coffee break in the warm sunshine lasted much longer than usual!

Midsummer 2018 was well and truly celebrated!

A Meadow Brown butterfly 

Local Insects – Correction to Village Voice Article

In the Village Voice July issue I wrote an article saying that the butterflies and dragonflies seemed to have largely disappeared from our local countryside.  That was following a series of outings during May and June and was true at the time.  Then I did my route on Saturday June 30th, and there were lots and lots of butterflies and some dragonflies. 

The butterflies were mainly meadow browns and small whites – there were dozens of them on a muddy patch in a cattle pasture below the village.  Recently I saw a big group of garden tiger moths in Holly Tree Lane and those have been around the village for a couple of weeks.

In a pond on Ridgebarn Farm, I was delighted to find lots of blue damselflies (at last!), one or two emerald damselflies and a couple of common darters.  Lots more banded demoiselles on the river and a brown hawker on the Thame.

Nature is very unpredictable, and all this was very good to see.  Hopefully more will turn up in the coming days.  We could do with some rain though!

Have Your Say – Bus Services

BCC has launched a survey regarding the county council supported routes in small towns, villages and rural areas in Buckinghamshire.  It wants to understand how current bus services are being used to review how future services can better meet people’s travel patterns.  This may include revising existing routes and timetables or looking at alternatives such as community transport or other flexible transport services.

Please take part in the survey at www.buckscc.gov.uk/bussurvey
