Starling murmurations contain huge numbers of birds. Dr Anne Goodenough from the University of Gloucestershire is studying them and estimates that in this murmuration in Oxfordshire approx 70000 birds were involved.
The University, and the Royal Society of Biology, continue to study the behaviour and, if you witness a murmuration, you can help with the starling survey. http://www.rsb.org.uk/get-involved/biologyweek/starling-survey

Spring Volunteer Meeting - March 12
Do you have a love of history, farming, gardening, enjoy talking to people, or want to make friends and learn some skills? If so CPP is the place for you. There are all sorts of things to do at the Plantation such as demonstrating 18th century crafts, assisting during special events, providing tours and helping in the office. We are also welcoming volunteers into our farm program that includes care of the crops and animals. This program will involve learning about our animal residents and how to care for them but will require a more substantial commitment than our other volunteer programs. For more information come to our annual Spring volunteer meeting on March 12, at the ballroom mansion of the Ridley Creek Park office. The meeting starts at 10:45 with an information session. Bring a lunch if you wish to visit the farm afterwards. Call the office to reserve a seat at 610 -566 -1725.

THIS OLD HOUSE -- A 375-YEAR OLD CABIN IN DELAWARE COUNTY
We often marvel over the venerable age of the John Bartram House, built in 1731. But located about six miles away is the LOWER SWEDISH CABIN, the oldest building in Pennsylvania and one of the oldest log cabins in America. It was built in 1640 -- precisely 375 years ago.
For a bit of historical perspective, this was twenty years *after* the Mayflower arrived at Plymouth Rock, and 135 years *before* the American Revolution.

During this holiday season, please consider a gift to keep Bartram’s Garden GROWING at http://squ.re/1O5sDak. Your tax-deductible donation helps preserve this landscape for future generations and support the many ways John Bartram's legacy lives on today.
Shiloh National Military Park
Today is the 42nd anniversary of one of the most important wildlife laws in United States history: The Endangered Species Act (ESA). It was signed into law in 1973, and was instrumental in preventing the extinction of several wildlife species, including the California condor, Florida manatee, and Shiloh Battlefield's most famous wildlife residents: the bald eagle.
This year will mark the ninth year that the park's resident adult eagles have nested on the battlefield. The eagles have been seen doing maintenance work in the nest tree (large loblolly pine) that they've used to rear eaglets eight out of the nine years they've been here. Here's to another successful nesting season!
Pictures compliment of Mr. Kenneth Walker.

"Do or do not, there is no try." - Yoda, Jedi Master
The creatures of Grand Teton National Park know this hard truth all too well as they struggle through our Hoth-like winters. They either survive or they don't. And without the ability to take shelter inside a tauntaun, the animals find other ways to adapt.

L'hivers est plein de couleurs pour qui sait regarder...
It's not only flowers and leaves that can provide winter colour - there is also a whole spectrum of colour provided by stems! Cornus and Salix may be the most well-known, but visit www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/partner-gardens/articles/showstopping-stems-and-bark to see more show-stopping stems chosen by curators and head gardeners across the country.
Les couleurs de l'hivers...
The winter color here at Tyler is eye popping, you've simply GOT to see it for yourself! This image hasn't been enhanced in any way in Photoshop—it might look like it, but nope: these berries are RED! Thanks to Mallory Smyth for the fabulous image.

C'est comme ça qu'on faisait du jus de pomme, un grand cercle en pierre où on amenait les pommes et où on les écrasait... A stone cider press.
THE BARTRAM’S GARDEN "CIDER PRESS" -- YESTERDAY AND TODAY
We found this charming photograph of our Cider Press on a Library of Congress web page. It was taken c.1900 and shows a man observing the Bartram's Garden press next to the Schuylkill River. The hand-carved stone channels were used to make apple cider and applejack back in John Bartram's day.
For fun, we asked one of our staff to help recreate the image in 2015. It's nice to know that, while the world rapidly changes around us, our Cider Press remains unchanged after 250 years.
