Things Various

Ferns were found in the coppice block.  This one was tall but as yet, it remains un-named.

The second we found is much smaller and is Hard Fern.

Whilst out wandering around a Kidney Spot Ladybird was spotted on top of a bridge rail, not the best place to be.

A very co-operative Frog or Leaf Hopper obliged by sitting still and not living up to its name by 'hopping' away.

This tiny insect also sat still and it is quite amazing.

Down on the Lake the Mallards were enjoying their feed.

After a drink and a bathe they found that the duck raft was the ideal place to finish their preening and have a rest.

A reminder that the Foxglove Coffee Morning is being held in Richmond Town hall on Thrusday, from 9 till 12.  If you have any donations for the raffle, tombola or cake stall please bring them to the Field Centre or take them to the Town Hall on Thursday morning.  Thank you.
