Autumn Update

Wednesday, August 11th 2010

This morning the air was decidely crisp and autumnal. The cooler night we had meant that the numbers in the moth trap were lower than of late. Amongst the catch were Sallow, Chevron, Least Yellow Underwing and Antler Moth.

For those of you who may be interested in seeing moths, we are having our yearly moth trapping evening at Marne Barracks this Friday. If you would like to see the traps opened on Saturday morning please get in touch with the office.

Travor working on the walkway

The walkway between the hides is almost finished. Today Trevor installed a line across the little valley to get the position of the footbridge which will connect the boardwalk to the hide. Here you can see him from the base of the hide.

Here is another view from across the valley.

The last photo is of the new Rowan berries. In this little tree the Tufted Vetch is scrambling so far up that the blue and red are combining together to make a beautiful sight.
