Adder’s-Tongue Fern

Thursday, June 4th 2009

This is Elizabeth's photo of the Adder's-Tongue Fern which is prolific on the new Wet Meadow. This is good news as it has not been recorded at Foxglove Covert since the early days. It is unusual for a fern in that it is an annual and has but a single leaf with a fertile spore spike.

The reception and year 1 classes from Hurworth House School came to visit today. They enjoyed learning about all the different habitats. One group were lucky enough to watch the Kingfisher diving for fish from the lake hide. The other group spotted a Common Lizard basking in the sunshine.

Elephant Hawk Moth

After poor moth trapping for much of this year, the warm weather meant that our moth trap was full this morning. A total of over 70 moths and 40 different species was recorded. One of the most spectacular was the Elephant Hawk Moth pictured above. (Photo by Danielle Nichol).
