Lots to see

Wednesday, September 3rd 2014

Today we had a busy morning with the regular moth group meeting to identify what was caught last night in the trap. We had eighty four moths over twelve species including this Frosted Orange that was caught on the reserve for the first time this year.


The Kingfishers have been spotted on multiple occasions over the last week or so, using our lake to fish. Today Jenny managed to sneak up on one taking a rest on the Mink raft and captured this amazing photo.


Fungi are coming out in this warm damp weather with numerous species spotted all over the reserve.


Eagle eyed Brian spotted this Seven Spot Ladybird pupae and then found the newly emerged Ladybird close by.


We also had the Dales School in for the first of their regular visits for this school year as well as an adult only pond dipping session this morning.
