Wet, Damp, Misty Morning

Thursday, September 18th 2014

The mist was heavy this morning and everything was wet.

Dew covered spider webs were seen everywhere, in Gorse, Heather, amongst the conifers and in the grass.  However the spiders were more difficult to spot.

By the afternoon, the almost sunshine, was beginning to evaporate the water droplets, although some could still be seen on the Devil’s Bit Scabious.

Some of the bees became active, feeding on the autumn flowers, although this one was sitting still.

Hipswell Primary School visited today and the children enjoyed looking for minibeasts, finding out about Foxglove’s habitats and the animals that live in them.

Volunteers were also in carrying out a variety of jobs, including cutting back net rides, administration work, meeting and greeting visitors, helping with the school visit and identifying the moths.

There were 28 moths of 10 different species, including, hopefully identified correctly, Dark Arches.

Also caught was Rosy Rustic.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped today.
