After the Rain

Saturday, June 9th 2012

After the heavy and persistent rain yesterday this morning was warm and sunny!  Two kittens (baby rabbits) were enjoying the fresh grass!  These look lovely in the sunshine, but they can do a lot of damage by digging along the path edges.

Bees have been in short supply so far this year but this one was found on the moor and was so big and heavy the Red Clover was bending under its weight.

Walking around the reserve, flowers just opening were added to the observation board, including Sow Thistle, Wintercress (which had 5 bees feeding from it) Marsh Cinquefoil (nearly out in flower!) and Weld, shown in the photograph below.
