More Thistles

Tuesday, August 11th 2015

Today the volunteers have again been pulling up thistles. This task must seem never ending to those who come to help out every week.  The good news is that most of the thistles are now cleared, and the task is almost over as most of the remaining thistles are now seeding.

This morning we had a group of children from Looby Lou’s Nursery Kids Club, who enjoyed a morning of pond dipping and bug hunting, followed by a walk around the reserve.

Around the reserve today we spotted larvae of the Kidney-Spot Ladybird. These tiny insects live on the bark of Ash trees and look like tiny spiky hairbrushes.

Thanks to everyone who helped out today.
