Keep Your Eyes Open

Monday, December 28th 2015

When going for a walk in the winter it is often best to go with two or three people with different nature interests.  Birders look up and spot the Buzzard on the moor, a Kestrel flying over the wetland and a Kingfisher feeding at the head of the lake.  The flower-watchers pick out a daisy type flower in the Scrapes, Betony in the plantation and Gorse near the Voley Ponds.  Rooters look for everything!  Whilst Leanne and Brian were rooting yesterday they found some fungi, which Leanne photographed.

Flower-watchers saw a large rosette of Foxglove leaves

and recorded Hazel trees covered in catkins.

Keep your eyes open to see what else is lurking in the undergrowth.  You are more than welcome to record your sightings on the Observation Board, which can be found, at the minute in the Activity Room.
