Messing about in the river!

Thursday, July 23rd 2009

There were 94 moths in the trap this morning of 32 different species. The one we had most of was the Large Yellow Underwing. The moth pictured is a Burnished Brass. It is unmistakeable with its brassy yellowish-green patches. It is a common moth at this time of year.

Elizabeth, Andrew and Bethany helped to identify all the moths.

Naomi, Owen and Bethany re-built the washed-out dams on Risedale Beck. They enjoyed messing about in the river!

Andrew, who is here as part of an NVQ course, mowed the front and back lawns this afternoon.
