Oak Beauty

Thursday, April 8th 2010

It has been a very successful day here in all sorts of ways.

Firstly, this morning, our moth trap yielded 149 moths. There were sixteen species altogether, the most notable was this Oak Beauty, but there was also Mottled Grey, Twin-spotted Quaker and Shoulder Stripe among the many others.

Later on Colin came to help with re-laying the sluices on the wetland. Four were repaired in the lovely, sunny weather this afternoon.

Then we had a visit from a group who are staying at Low Mill Outdoor Centre. They walked around looking at the Toads and the Greylag Goose on its nest. They were lucky enough to see a newt on the wetland as well.

They finished their walk watching the cattle on the middle field.
