Grass of Parnassus in flower

Wednesday, August 19th 2009

Here is Elizabeth's photo of the Grass of Parnassus. This is now flowering on the moorland. This hairless perennial is locally common only in Northern Britain and Ireland and grows on damp, peaty grassland, marshes and moors.

Water Voles were seen swimming around at the head of the lake today. 40 new Water Voles will be arriving on Saturday at 9.30am! These will be captive bred and will be released all around the site. It is hoped that they will thrive on the new wetland where there are pool banks that have been created specifically for the voles.

If you are interested in helping out with the Water Vole release or would like to come along to see them on Saturday please get in touch with us on 07754 270980 (mobile) or 01748 831113 (office).
