A Field Centre Buzz

Wednesday, August 2nd 2017

The wet weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of either visitor or volunteer,which was a good thing because the Field Centre was a buzz of activity. The first folk in this morning were the moth group.

We began the day by opening the moth trap I had put out last thing yesterday. Although not a large catch it was quality, with moths such as these second generation Early Thorns

….and Purple Thorns.

This Purple Bar was particularly striking.

This small moth, called a Chinese Character, was notable for other reasons; it is a mimic of bird droppings.

Later on in the morning the flower group came in having had a walk around the reserve recording our flora.

In the afternoon the weather had not improved for our pond dipping,

but all appeared to enjoy themselves and were able to dry out and have a hot cuppa during the indoor activities.

The egg box frogs were very popular, and also the frogs life cycle.

Thank you to all who came today both as a volunteer or visitor. A special thank you to Christine for her assistance with the pond dipping activity.
