Sunshine galore!

Monday, July 18th 2016

It’s been a lovely day today, one of the hottest of the year so far according to the radio this morning, and the reserve is looking glorious in the sunshine. Apparently tomorrow is set to be even hotter. Why not come to Foxglove for a picnic? We have picnic spaces waiting!

In fauna news, we found this beautiful little critter in the office this afternoon. It’s a ruby-tailed wasp, Chrysis ignita. According to our book, these wasps mostly parasitise mason bees and are often seen running over tree trunks and walls in search of their nests.

Finally, how many ducks can we fit on one duck raft? Glennis saw eight on ours this morning, plus a bonus moorhen!
