Late Entry!

Thursday, May 31st 2012

At the end of each month, the observations are recorded from the notice board in the Field Centre. This month the board was completely full with a wide variety of species. Over 80 wildflowers, 50 birds, 5 mammals, 3 amphibians,and 44 invertebrates including 8 butterflies (and the moths being recorded elsewhere).  In several places Northern Marsh Orchids are lining the footpaths.


A real delight to the eye.

Cuckoo spit containing froghopper larvae is now starting to appear on grass stems everywhere.

Sightings of amphibians included this Great Crested Newt which qualified for the May data only this afternoon!
