A Dry SunnyDay!!!

Sunday, July 22nd 2012

Sun hats and sun cream were the order of the day, making a change from overtrousers and wellies, as the Wildflower Walk and Yoredale Naturalists set out on different walks around the reserve. Seventy two flowers were recorded including Self Heal, shown below.

Self Heal

Orchids were seen still blossoming in a variety of colours.

St John's Wort, growing on the heath, was examined using a hand lens to see the coloured 'dots' on the sepals and petals.  These can be used as a diagnostic feature of the many St John's Worts.

Yoredale Naturalists recording included  Kidney Spot Ladybirds, Ringlet Butterflies, shield bugs along with grasses and flowers.  

Thank you to Ann and Brian who helped with these walks and made them enjoyable and interesting.

Another huge thank you to the volunteers who were at Tescos today, raising funds for Foxglove Covert.
