Early morning cuppa in bed conversation today.
Since we have lived here, almost 14 years, lakes are shrinking, we no longer hear frogs when 14 years ago at this time of year it was almost deafening.
There are no where near the amount of Storks, Kranes, green finches, well all the little birds including the sparrows are diminishing, hares used to entertain us early spring, deer in their dozens are no longer, if we see 20 together these days its a lot.
I expect a lot is to do with agriculture, new herbicides so nothing for the hares to eat, more efficient sprays against fungi and aphids, less food for the little birds.
The sprays get into the ditches and ponds killing off the frogs, Storks and Kranes eat frogs so there is less food for them and if the canīt feed the young they perish.
Anyway up, if we are still alive in another 14 years will there be any wild life left for us to enjoy?
We learn something new every day.
