Species Galore

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Amazingly we have recorded 2688 species on the reserve to date and we are waiting for the first new species of 2018.  During last year, 65 new species were noted.   The web site holds a list of all the species and we try to add photographs and notes where possible.

Blackfoot Polypore was a new fungus recorded.

Sometimes searching through photographs I come across one that is missing from the web site.  Jack-by-the-hedge or Galic Mustard, is not often recorded on the reserve.

Another photo found was of Mare's Tail, an aquatic flowering plant, not to be confused with horsetails.

It is also the time of year when the final totals of birds processed are distributed to the bird ringers.

Brambling have not been seen or ringed very often this winter but last year 78 new birds received their rings.

As visitors and volunteers are aware the Sparrowhawk has a flight plan through the back garden and is often seen sitting on the feeders.  Only one new bird was caught last year.
