HOUSE MARTINS visiting the buildings where they will make their mum nests under the eaves. They are only checking - they will come back and start building in a little while. I’ll let you know when.

OAK BUDS bursting - they contain both leaves and catkins.

ROBINS famous for nesting in in all kinds of unlikely places. Look near the ground in hollows, nooks and crannies, climbing plants and log piles. They may already have babies in the nest.

Remember not to touch KINGFISHERS nesting in holes in the riverbank. Often while one of the pair is in the hole, the other waits on a branch nearby. What have you spotted this month? Post your pictures in The Gallery and let us know what’s caught your eye.

The Phantom Lollipop Man!

Review to follow (busy week!) but, as you can see, I adored this hence its position as the March Book of the Month!  



Igniting Writing is a creative writing club hosted at Wokingham Library and completely free to attend. The club provides a fun, relaxed atmosphere where 11-18 year-olds can develop their storytelling and writing skills. Writing can be a bit of a solitary activity, so this provides a great opportunity for teens to come together and write as a group, share their imaginative story ideas with others and build friendships with other young aspiring writers. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings, 10:30am to 12noon, and focus on a different aspect of writing every week, from creating characters and settings to exploring genres like sci-fi, fantasy and beyond. Roughly once a month Igniting Writing also hosts 'guest speaker' sessions, where local authors, poets, journalists and other people experienced in the world of writing come and share their knowledge and advice – it's a chance to get the inside scoop from the pros!
