Cold Weather Continues!

Tuesday, May 15th 2012

Sun, blue sky, white clouds, dark clouds, rain and wind all in one day!  Due to this cold weather the insects are inactive and many who should be out and about during this month are not to be seen.  One bumble bee was seen today and one yesterday. Our hive bees are being fed with sugar syrup regularly.

Large Red Damselflies should be hunting across the ponds, only two sightings have been recorded this month, including the one below who was hiding in a Gorse bush.  Note that the wings are held parallel to the body.

Wood Anemone has been in flower for some time but they are now setting seed.
