The (not a) Mystery of the Disappearing Apple…

Friday, June 10th 2016

Yesterday we told you that we installed two new water vole feeding platforms. By this morning half an apple had disappeared from one of them!

Our water voles seem very active today. As well as the disappearing apple we have had a number of sightings and new feeding remains. Some of the children who were pond dipping as part of today’s school visit were even lucky enough to hear their characteristic ‘plop’ into the water and a few saw a furry back disappearing…

We made a rookie mistake yesterday in saying that it looked like a lovely evening for the Beavers group as the British weather must have been listening… They still had a good time pond dipping in the rain! They were a lovely group, interested in everything around them and particularly fascinated by our honey bees in their display hive.

Don’t forget – you can come and see our bees too as we are open to the public (just remember to bring some ID to get through the garrison)! We also have honey for sale.

On another note, as always, our bird feeders around the site are filled ready for the weekend – thank you to Colin for doing this. Thanks also to Stephen, who bagged more bird seed ready for sale in our Field Centre.
