Elephant Hawkmoth

Monday, June 13th 2011

A few weeks ago, Raye bought in a chrysalis of the Elephant Hawkmoth. At the weekend it hatched into this beautiful adult.

If you would like to learn more about these amazing animals there will be an opportunity to join Charlie (County recorder) at Marne Barracks on the 16th July and again at Foxglove Covert on the 23rd July on the Open Day. See the events section for more information.

Pupils from Hipswell School visited today, they enjoyed learning about habitats and did some pond-dipping too. The bridge at the head of the lake is almost complete!

This is one of the structures that will be formally opened by a VIP on Saturday 23rd July.
