The reserve in the sunshine

Thursday, September 10th 2009

Another gloriously sunny day here at the reserve. The hide was shimmering in the heat and the joggers had slowed to a walk when this photo was taken this afternoon.

Work today has been filling up the feeders ready for the weekend and cutting back some large trees which were overhanging the access road.

Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies were fluttering on the Hemp Agrimony and the Fleabane.

The vole pond was sparkling and the Reedmace has started to shed its' fluffy seed which floats on the slightest breath of wind.

Many of you may know Danielle who takes many of our beautiful photographs. She has a picture of a Common Blue butterfly taken at Foxglove in a competition. Here is a link if you would like to vote for her.
