Apple for All

Monday, July 10th 2017

Water voles enjoy the apples on our feeding platforms: Our experience agrees with the text books – that despite having a huge range of food-plants (they’ve been recorded eating over 200 different species) apples are a favourite! However, it’s not just water voles that enjoy the apples; they’re very popular with some of our other wildlife too as shown in this rather lovely footage from earlier today…

Well the best laid plans of mice and men!  I was praising technology not long ago, now it has us totally confused.  A video is all ready, but for some reason it will not upload to the web site.   It can be viewed on our Facebook page.  Hopefully we can work our way through the mysteries of the internet and upload the video over the next few days.

I did have difficulty in choosing which photographs to use over the weekend and some had to be left out, so here they are.  The hoverflies were busy feeding on Dandelion flowers.

Some of the hive bees were returning with very large pollen sacs.

My favourite, although not to everyone's taste, is this Cucumber Spider.  It has a red bottom!
