  • Blog Post: Mid-summer heathy stuff

    A look around the heath ('the triangle') this morning reminded me of why this habitat is so fascinating - saw plenty of Agelena labyrinthica (see photo), waiting in their funnels in the heather, and the place was alive wtih grasshoppers, hoverflies and various other insects. Much of the heather...
  • Blog Post: Gold spot, black wood.

    A golden oriole was singing from the woodland (the 'black wood') next to the bridleway yesterday afternoon.

    First frosts of the autumn over the last two nights has given the site a much more wintry feel. There are few redpolls to be found feeding the birches around the trail, a few siskins in the pines on the heath and small groups of fieldfares and redwings have been seen passing overhead. Yesterday morning...
