Butterfly Count and grasses, July 26th 2014

Around 30 members and visitors met in the car park on another very warm day. The conditions were perfect - sunny and calm. We split into two groups and covered most of the Nature Reserve in three hours. Butterflies were in abundance all over the reserve.

Some of the party assembles to decide on the route

Back over the Bailey Bridge. A grey wagtail was on the river and two well grown goosanders were seen near the weir

We met at the bird feeding station for some refreshments.
