Still in Flower

Tuesday, November 9th 2010

A pictureless blog today I'm afraid.  Despite the wet weather there are still flowers to be seen.  Betony, White Dead Nettle, Red Campion, Eyebright and Dog Daisy are still in flower in various corners of the reserve. 

More work was done on the Willow coppice and both sets of contractors were carrying on despite the heavy rain showers. 

Although moths can be found throughout the year, in practice it is too cold now for us to leave the trap on all night.  Therefore our trappng season has finished.  Our trapping started off quite slowly, but in the end, it has been an interesting year.  There have been quite a few new species added to the moth list.  Most notable was the Blackneck, (see blog post 8th. July), which was the first one trapped in our recording area.
