Mating frogs and last work day

Sunday, March 14th 2010

The sunshine today meant that the ponds everywhere were rippling with the activity of the frogs! Everywhere you turn there is frogspawn.


Let's hope that the weather stays warm enough as for the last two years late frosts have devastated our froggy population.

Today was the last of our winter work days of the 2009 -2010 season. Seventeen people gave up their time to help clear up in the woodland. Thanks a lot to everyone who turned up.

Winter work day

On the wetland Lapwings are back and busily staking out their territory. Hopefully they will have the same breeding success that they did last year.
