Bees and Trees

Friday, April 26th 2013

The first few bumblebees of the year have been busy collecting pollen from the wildflowers during the sunny spells (and avoiding the hail storms)! This Common Carder Bee was photographed in a glade whilst out working in the woodland.

A combination of saturated ground and high winds has led to the loss of several trees around the reserve. This large Beech tree was cut up to provide different habitat piles for wildlife.

Lesser Redpoll can still be seen throughout the reserve. It won't be long before they head off to their breeding grounds.
