Vole Holes!

Thursday, March 1st 2012

Several moths were trapped overnight. Satellite, Clouded Drab, Early Moth and March Moth were amongst the species identified. Out on the reserve the frogs were still very active. The reedbed pond with the cut stems has already been filled with frogspawn!

Adam and Jake worked hard on the wetland to repair the damage caused by the Water Voles.

Whilst working there they found Otter footprints in the mud and this beautiful Smooth Newt.


Amongst other jobs, Hilde cleared out the back garden pond which was choked with vegetation. Ruth, Elizabeth and Sally kept on top of the indoor jobs.

If you look carefully at the photo below, you should be able to spot one of the foresters carrying out tree surgery! This is now complete.

Spot the man!

A group from Open Country in Harrogate enjoyed a walk around today and were delighted to spot many birds including Brambling - and a Water Vole!
