Enjoying the Sun!

Tuesday, May 22nd 2012

The brilliant sunshine we have had here today has transformed the reserve, all the buds have burst and the last grips of winter feel like they are now long gone.  Working up in the woodland in the dappled shade amongst the butterflies and birdsong was glorious, the path edging has now been completed and looks great!  Brian especially enjoyed rooting around the woodland and has discovered a new species of ladybird for the site - the 14 spot.

John also walked the butterfly transect today and saw 26 indivduals from 4 species in the hour he walked the route.  This Green Veined White was seen feeding on Greater Stitchwort in one of the net rides.

Great! another new species for the reserve.  Where has it been hiding all this time?

After all this time it must have been really good to see some butterflies.
