Sorry everyone but due to a shortage of staff we will not be able to run the Moth Night this Friday (2nd July) for health & safety reasons.
Apologies for this but there will be another one on Friday Agust 6th, starting at 2100
morning, just a quick note to say that the shope will be opening at 10am today. Sorry for any inconvenience caused
A sultry day with some much needed rain this morning which was great as we planted loads more flowers in the wildlife garden yesterday. We have also discovered a colony of a rare longhorn moth that lives on Black Horehound (a type of non-stingy nettle) that fortunately we have a lot of!
Nemophora fasciella Horehound Longhorn by me
The Merganser is still in Aveley Bay and the reserve is alive with dragonflies now
