Mole madness and other sightings

Friday, June 22nd 2018

We've seen four Moles above ground today, most likely as a consequence of their invertebrate prey being scarce and/or the ground being particularly hard due to drought.

Moles will sometimes surface during conditions such as these in order to search for new food supplies.

Two of the Moles happened upon each other by the Field Centre before having a little barney and going their seperate ways.

Aside from the Moles there has been a lot of activity on the lake today, with Tufted Ducks, Little Grebes and Mallards a plenty

We've had hundreds of damselflies on the Scrapes and plenty of Four Spotted Chasers also!

Whereas over by the Heath there have been Common Blue and Meadow Brown butterflies all over the place.

I spotted this little guy taking shade from the hot summer sun on an Oxeye Daisy too.

Around the Field Centre we've been inundated with Goldfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Great Tits, with the majority of the bird feed that Colin has been putting out having already disappeared!
