During the last few months I have noticed a welcome upsurge in local and non local people visiting Raw Nook NR. In addition some have been interested in our wildlife and have stopped for a chat.
I have been asked some really interesting questions like… What’s the red and black moths ( Burnet moths ) that I keep seeing flying in the meadow? Is there bats in this area? and What’s that dark brown butterfly with little circles on it’s wings ( Ringlet). And Oh! what’s happened to the pond? ( probable leak)
This interest is great to see and long may it continue.
I had a lovely sight yesterday when a female Southern Hawker dragonfly emerged from the pond and settled on a nearby plant to dry. It stay still in the sunshine for about an hour before flying off over Caldene fields.
