Adders emerge

Mar 22, 2011   //   by Nicholas Milton   //   Blog, Environment  //  No Comments

March is the month that Adders come out of hibernation and is the best time to see them as they emerge from their dens. Yesterday I looked for Adders at a site I know on the edge of some woodland and photographed a couple of them basking in the sun. The Guardian featured one of the images in its round up of the week in wildlife. The Adder is the only venomous snake in Britain but is quite harmless unless caught or trodden on (definately to be avoided!). They are actually very shy and will slither back into the undergrowth at the slightest disturbance.  Adders can be distinguished from other snakes by the zigzag pattern on their back.

Chatter Matters

Mar 17, 2011   //   by Nicholas Milton   //   Blog  //  No Comments

On wednesday to celebrate Chatter Matters Week mums, dads and children from Stratford Childrens Centre took singing, storytelling and dancing out onto the streets of Stratford. I went along with my little girl Georgia. We visited Morrisons supermarket, Cafe Nero, Shakespeare’s Birthplace and the library. The idea behind Chatter Matters Week is simple : talking, being face to face, repeating words, speaking slowly and joining in their play helps children talk. The Royal Shakespeare Company has also supported Chatter Matters Week putting on activities and workshops that encourage families to learn, play and talk together. It was great fun and a big thank you to Corrin and Alex who organised the day. Click on an image below to see the slideshow.
