Golden Plover chicks

Thursday, May 20th 2010

Visiting group from the Adult Learning ServiceThe warm weather has encouraged the pondlife out from the depth of the ponds and meant that the pond dipping has been more successful. This group from the Adult Learning Service caught several tadpoles and a damselfly larvae and Stickleback.

Danby Wiske WI enjoyed a guided walk this afternoon and spotted butterflies including Orange tip, Peacock, Small White and Large White. Black Medic has joined the list of plants in flower.

Here is a picture of the screen being built on the wetland. Custom Made Wooden Buildings is the firm that are constructing this and when complete it will prevent disturbance to the wildlife as people approach the hide.

Finally, these Golden Plover chicks were ringed out on the training area yesterday.
