Storms have a habit of arriving just in time for the weekend. We spend all week working hard and looking forward to getting outdoors for a walk in the sun, only to check the forecast and see that the Met Office advise us to stay in. But, that doesn't mean you have to be bored if you are stuck indoors all day...and you can still do your bit for wildlife too. There are plenty of things to do when the weather is bad!
You might notice that even in the windiest of weather, some bird species such as gulls and crows still appear to fly effortless around in search of food. Gulls have long, narrow wings that allow them to glide in the roughest of conditions, having adapted to a life along coastlines and out at sea. Other species like falcons also have narrow wings to make flight in harsh conditions easier. These adaptations allow those species to continue to find something to eat even in the harshest of weather.
