More Rain

Wednesday, April 13th 2016

The rain was falling steadily as I arrived at the reserve, there had been no respite over night.

The moth trap left out gave us several Hebrew Characters, Common Quakers, and a Powdered Quaker which is a paler version of the common.

Powdered Quaker

The Easter Egg Treasure Hunt draw was made and all the winners were contacted to pick up their prizes.

In the back garden of the Field Centre, Jenny noticed a Redstart flitting backwards and forwards, but we were unable to get a decent picture.  These birds are not that common on the reserve so we were pleased to see this brightly-coloured newly-arrived migrant..

Thankfully the rain turned to drizzle as this evening we had attending the site the Colburn Beavers. They were keen to earn their outdoor/wildlife badges, so we were able to take them to the ponds to look for Toads, and up to the outdoor classroom for charcoal bark rubbing, and looking for minibeasts in the pit fall traps. Thank you to Jackie for her much needed help.
