Mist and Cobwebs!

Wednesday, March 16th 2011

The shroud of mist has remained over the reserve all day and is even denser than it was yesterday. As you can see from Elizabeth's photos visibility is very low!

The water droplets in the conifer trees are highlighting the spider webs, a sure sign that these incredible invertebrates are gearing up for the spring.

According to the Greek story Arachne was a maiden so skilled in spinning she made the Goddess of Weaving jealous and her penalty was to be turned into a spider and spin her threads forever! Even the prickliest of places can become a cosy home with a silky web!

Volunteers continued to clear brash from fallen trees and to remove hundreds of Birch saplings that were invading an open grassy area. The diggers and dumpers are moving earth at the lake again and footpath repairs are still underway. There will definitely be a lot to celebrate on the Open Day on the 23rd July.

There are still places available on the Saturday Workie Day (Mar 19), please let us know if you can join in and we will arrange for a delicious hot lunch, see the events page for details.
