Bioblitz Update

Monday, July 22nd 2013

After a fantastic weekend, the dust has settled and the reserve is getting back to normal!  Here are some more photos from the weekend, the first is Meadowsweet taken in the Scrapes.

The list of species is ever growing with many species having been sent away for identification, we are expecting a total of about 750 species to have been identified over the weekend.  Two of the easier species were Buff-Tailed Bumblebee and Marsh Thistle.

Volunteers were hard at work once again helping to restore order in the Field Centre.  Their hard work over the weekend, baking, selling quizzes and raffle tickets, running stalls and shops, taking guided walks and all the other little jobs that kept everything running smoothly raised a staggering £1091 for the reserve!  This is fantastic - thanks to you all once again!

Brilliant week-end. Well organised by everyone and all sections were worth visiting and all the instructors spent time passing on their knowledge to young and old. Roll on the next one!!

Well done to everyone concerned.
