A Pathfinders Day

Wednesday, March 2nd 2016

There was a slight flurry of snow in the early morning before I got to the reserve, giving a more chilled feeling. I knew then that the moth trap we put out the evening before would have limited success having been so cold , but regardless of this a single Pale Brindled Beauty (male) made it worth it.

The Pathfinder group from Help for Heroes visited today and I was able to give them a lengthy tour of the facilities before returning to the Field Centre for lunch and more importantly a hot drink . The bird ringing room providing plenty of interest, and to finish off we had a visit and birdwatch from the Lake Hide . A male Great Spotted Woodpecker pecked at the remaining peanuts in the feeder, with Greenfinch and Chaffinch scratching around below in the debris. The Pathfinders enjoyed the visit and the peace and tranquillity we have to offer.

Could anyone who is attending the Winter Worky Day this Saturday please contact the Reserve Managers , we would hate you to miss out on the hot lunch.

Also, any volunteers who would like to assist us and The Freshwater Habitats Trust with the Waterblitz Day, on Monday the 14th March please contact the reserve.
