A Quiet Sunday

Sunday, July 26th 2015

There was no bird ringing at Foxglove today as we carried out our regular CES ringing on Wednesday. After the excitement of the Festival of Nature last weekend, this meant the reserve felt particularly quiet and peaceful.

Despite this, there was still work to be done including strimming and trimming back some of the vegetation.  Whilst out and about on the reserve we found the following:

Robin’s Pincushion, a gall caused by the larva of a tiny gall wasp

Stinging Nettle

Common Centaury

Visitors today came from far and wide to the reserve, with the record breakers having come all the way from Miami!
