Inside Out!

Tuesday, May 8th 2012

Kevin Horspool had a pleasant surprise this morning as he sat in the wetland hide. Two Redstart flew in through an open window and had a fight! Here is one of them on the inside of the hide, looking out! Kevin helped the birds by releasing them back outside. Thank you for the photo Kevin.

Thanks to Wendy for this photo taken at the Black Grouse Lek on Monday morning too.

The Lek

Volunteers have been hard at work today pruning back net rides, painting benches, clearing pond inflows and repairing footpaths. Only two Speckled Wood were seen on the butterfly transect although Orange-Tip and Green Veined White also put in appearances at other times during the day.
