A Colouful Blog!

Saturday, February 24th 2018

Having just looked at the weather forecast for the next ten days I decided that a bright colourful blog was needed!

Spring sees Lesser Celandine flowers.

Greater Stitchwort, provides food for many insects.

Come summer the Common Blue Butterflies are feeding on Bird's Foot Trefoil.

The Cucumber Spider is one of my favourites in the summer months, bright green with a red bottom, but still hard to find.

Common Spotted Orchids appear across the reserve.

By September the reserve is changing colour to the golds, yellows and reds of autumn. Guelder Rose berries hang brighly from the branches.

I suspect that the blogs next week will be white.
