Damsels and Damselflies

Tuesday, May 29th 2018

I won't say too much about today aside from that the volunteers have been hard at work strimming, mowing, and maintaining the reserve, and that the weather has been no where near as good as it was over the Bank Holiday.

It was interesting to see the sheer volume of Willow seed fluff covering much of the reserve today, I even panicked when I saw the Heath as I thought we had had yet more snow!

The Water Voles have clearly been sheltering from the turning weather, using the Mink raft on the Scrapes. It's great to hear and see evidence of the Water Voles on the reserve again after a period of little activity!

The weather was much more favourable yesterday when we were joined by a small group of big kids wanting to go Pond Dipping. 

Much of the same was found with the addition of the emerging damselfly larvae, one of which managed to make it's way onto Melissa's hand before escaping it's exuvia.
