Today - had first sighting of a Brimstone butterfly.

There are also three Grey Wagtails on the Reserve.

Violets, Primroses, Marsh Marigolds, Daffodils and Forsythia are all in flower

using a bit of artistic licence, this is what could be seen at about 11.00pm on Saturday.
If only someone had reminded me that the moon (and adjacent star) are moving targets!

first contribution!

First a view of the site from the old railway route footpath/cycleway.

I hope anyone familiar with this view is able to cope with the lack of seating!

Experienced spotters will be able to identify the Sandy Glover amongst this flock of resident species seen on site mid January..............

... and patience is rewarded with a closer view...

A few members of the Wicket Brood Morris have also been seen performing early spring rituals ...
and they are not just pointing
out each other's inadequacies...

This rare breed is generally migratory and only seen briefly on site in January. Watch this space for the more unusual sightings.
