All Creatures Great and Small

Friday, October 23rd 2015

Well it’s definitely turned colder overnight, but at least it was bright and dry for what will probably be our last school field visit this year, which again was from Hipswell Primary school. 
Today we took them out around the reserve to observe the changing seasons and spot some of the creatures that live on the reserve, including a hunt for mini-beasts.

Here are some of the creatures we found.

This is a looper caterpillar named after it's characteristic gait! We don't know exactly what it will become but we think probably a species of moth.

 This photograph, taken in the hand, is of a gorse seed weevil, it lives within the seed pod and uses it long proboscis which you can see, to feed on the seeds.

 Thank you to all our volunteers who came today and helped out, your contribution is much appreciated.
