Rainy Day

Friday, August 13th 2010

A very, very wet day today meant that most of the work was done in the office.

Foxglove flowers and a rainy day

In between showers this photo of the lake shows the last of the Foxglove flowers hanging on. On the left you can see just how much growth the Willows have made on the island. Remember, this little island was coppiced to the ground last January!

There have been a few visitors, even ones who decided to have a picnic, regardless of the rain!

Up on the moorland the cattle ignored the rain, which probably didn't penetrate their shaggy coats, and on the wetland the sheep just carried on eating!

The rain, which is forecast to continue through the night, has meant that our moth trapping evening at Marne Barracks has had to be cancelled.
