When The Sun Comes Out

Saturday, April 26th 2014

One day sun, one day cold, one day wet.  Our weather is never the same one year to the next and not even this week, one day to the next!  When the sun comes out everything makes the most of it.

At the minute this is the only Early Purple Orchid that would pass the 'flower test'.  We may find some more in flower on the flower walk on Wednesday.

Speckled Wood Butterflies enjoy small sunny areas, especially along wooded paths.  Males set up territories and defend them against other males.  This one was enjoying the sunshine!

Volunteers have been busy this week carrying out a variety of different jobs.  Some have been involved in looking at the work needed to help with the Touchscreen project.  More tree tubes have been checked.  Much needed repairs to wheelbarrows have been completed.  The Field Centre has had some TLC!  Thank you to everyone who has given their time this week, it is greatly appreciated.
