Have your say

We never know quite what weather we are going to get here in Britain. Managing a nature reserve, particularly a wetland, I do pay close attention to the weather. We need the rain to keep the reedbeds wet but we also like some dry periods for the wildlife so that we can get our work done. Our weather is so unpredictable. Will we have a glorious summer this year like last year and see a profusion of high summer butterflies during the school holidays or will it be cold and wet? Last June, July and August were warm and dry which was a pleasant change after the cold, late spring we had. This year so far has been the exact opposite.
