Highlights from Today

Thursday, June 16th 2011

The sun highlights the tall grasses which were waving in the breeze this afternoon.  Through all the open glades the grasses are coming into flower.

Yesterday Elizabeth took this close-up of a grasshopper on Gorse flowers.


The staff from Fusion LX were here all day laying cables so we can have our lake camera working again.

Meanwhile volunteers Mike and Kyle did some work on the moorland and then built a new boardwalk over a wet area in the scrapes.  You can see Kyle (below) as he was clearing the tools at the end of the day.Kyle at the finished boardwalk

This Large Skipper was taken late in the afternoon with the sun shining through the wings.
