Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.
Three jays must have hatched nearby this year as in the Spring and Summer the three lads used to go round in a gang making a fair old noise and full of life. Now there is just one visiting my container of peanuts. Before advancing to the peanut dispenser he dances up and down across the top of the wall. So I have given him the name of AJ. That reminds me. The December edition of Wildlife is now online.
The Wildlife Watch page for November is now online. David Cummings tells us how many aspects of nature are rather different this year
I have noticed a lot more fungi in my garden this year and just put it down to the never-ending downpours of rain we have had. So David Cummings' article is a timely insight into these strange beings that seem to suddenly appear. All in Wildlife Watch for October 2017 and now on the website here
The theme for the September edition of Wildlife Watch by David Cummings is "Look up". Whether it is in Christleton and surrounding areas or in the French Alps it might just be worth a go.
The Wildlife Watch for August by David Cummings is now available. It seems as if July was an exceptional month for sightings of Butterflies, Dragonflies and Damselflies. Illustrated with a superb collection of 25 photographs.
