Moths at Last!

Wednesday, March 23rd 2011

This Twin-spotted Quaker moth was one of 6 of its kind waiting in the trap this morning. There were 85 moths in total of 8 different species. In addition to the one pictured here there was Clouded Drab, Common Quaker, Chestnut, March Moth, Shoulder Stripe, Yellow-horned and Mottled Grey. This was the first successful trapping this year thanks to a mild night.

The 'big dig' at the lake is almost finished. Guy and his team added some finishing touches to the shoreline today and will soon begin the remedial work repairing all of the access tracks. Trevor and Daryl travelled back today to start work on the bridge at the head of the lake.

Guy helped them to move the large poles that will support the new structure and link the new easy access paths.

Meanwhile, spring marches on. The Kidney-spot Ladybirds were all over the sunny and warm side of the Ash trees. A Comma and a Peacock butterfly were added to the list of observations in the Field Centre and a Water Vole was seen in a pond in the scrapes. The Frogs and Toads continue to amaze all visitors including contractors and fresh Otter spraint was also found today!
