Final work started!

Wednesday, May 11th 2011

Trevor and Darryl have come back to start the last of the work around the lake.  They are installing a new boardwalk through the Hazel coppice and finishing the second bridge.  The bridge and boardwalk will link up both halves of the Easy Access Trail, which will once again be a circular route.

The moth trapping last night was quite successful.  There were eleven species in the trap this morning, including Water Carpet, Chinese Character, Brimstone, Pale Prominent and Scalloped Hazel.  This Poplar Hawkmoth (below) stayed for a photo-shoot!

Poplar Hawkmoth

This common moth is found all over Britain. 

Every day now there are more plants in flower.  Lousewort and Common Milkwort are in flower on the moorland and the Northern Marsh Orchids are just beginning to show their colour.
