Wetland and Water Scorpion

Thursday, May 27th 2010

Interpretation panelHere is the the completed screen up on the wetland along with the one of the new interpretation panels. This screen has been funded by Natural England and the sign was paid for by Yoreventure. They will make a big difference to people visiting this new habitat which has already brought several new species to the site.

There are hundreds of spider webs across the reserve today, these stood out because they kept their dew drops all day long due to the low temperature. They sparkled like jewels in the grasses!


This Water Scorpion was found whilst carrying out pond maintenance in the scrapes area. These carniverous insects catch their prey with their large pincers and suck the insides out! Enjoy your tea!
