Base Camp Is Operational

Our base camp opened for the first time today, and was much needed as the rain thrashed down, yet again!!


It provided welcome shelter for Marcus, Phil, Aaron, Sharon and myself, plus all of our kit.


A Blue Tit was our only visitor at the feeders. This was from the observation bench/hide. I would really like to get different types of food for the feeders, but just need to sort out some kind of storage. I have an idea so watch this space!!

The lack of sunshine seems to be delaying most of the wildflowers from actually flowering, so I took some photos of grass instead… (slideshow might take a minute to load)

I must admit, I am finding it hard to adjust to the weather. The plan across the summer was to be searching out wildflowers, butterflies and other insects, identifying them and making records. So far, for me, it has been more than disappointing. However, I am sure it will come good eventually.

But as they always say, it’s amazing what a brew can do…


And we are not looking too bad as a green space.



Well, that is about it for this week, next one is SATURDAY 29th JUNE looking at a path down to the reedbed and a bit of a litter-pick.
