Raindrops

Thursday, July 21st 2011

Weather has been mentioned rather a lot on the blog recently and today is no exception!  The rain did stop for a time this morning and the grasses were covered in droplets of water that even the gentle breeze did not move.

Late yesterday afternoon the “wriggly tin” (a metal sheet laid on the ground to encourage reptiles) on the heathland was checked - to date this has yielded some ants and some vole tunnels. This time a Common Toad was sitting under it.  Still no reptiles.

Ann recorded the flowers on the reserve and her list came to over 70 species in flower.  We think a new species has been added to the species list, Saw-wort.   Confirmation and a photo, hopefully, will follow.
