Tadpoles and butterflies!

Friday, May 7th 2010

The sunny weather encouraged all the tadpoles in the wetland pools out to swim. The shallow marginal waters were teeming with thousands of them this afternoon.


Orange Tip, Peacock and Large White butterflies were everywhere and White-tailed Bumblebees were busy on the Blackthorn flowers.

The leaves of Meadowsweet are to be found through the scrapes and along the edge of the lake, whilst the silvery backs of the Silverweed leaves are shining along the wetland bunds.

Today Askham Bryan students started to install a stock proof fence between the wetland and the area the cattle are kept in. They will continue with this work next week.
