21st June

The cattle have been moved from the new fenced area, talking to Bri he says it will be grazed, 1st Sept to 1st Dec and 1st April to 1st June, reasons only known to NE.

The Reed Warblers returned to the fishing pond this year and managed to catch one singing in the reeds near the path.

Also a Ringed Plover was feeding in the field next to the Chalet park.

This year has been slightly better than last for the Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary, have been walking the area regularly and managed to see two. Last year it was very cold and none were seen, there have been numbers in the early twenties in the past but the cattle grazing the area probably won’t help either.
