What did you spot?

Wednesday, October 30th 2013

The monthly flower survey was done this morning; 27 species, including Honeysuckle, Knapweed and Ivy were recorded, a good number for the time of year.

It was noticed how many 7-Spot Ladybirds were beginning to group together along spikey twigs and in Gorse bushes as they make a search for a place to hibernate.  The spiked bushes offer them some protection from hungry winter predators.

With the wonderful calm weather it is an ideal opportunity to finish the autumn strimming on the wetland.  Both Adam's were hard at work up there this morning to clear the last of the invasive coarse rushes and gorse.  These will be raked up and cleared in due course.  Both Jack Snipe and Snipe were seen here during the day.

Finally, don't forget about our Go Batty half term Halloween event tomorrow morning.  Join us in the classroom from 10am for some spooky arts and crafts activities!
