June 9th: The Reserve is now in full flower, with the meadows populated by markedly different varieties.

June 1st (Note from Guy): Just to let you know I saw a kingfisher by the main inlet to the lake today ( 2 p.m. ) also there are good signs i,e white splashes that the kingfisher has been around a fair bit.
There are 2 moorhen chicks as well, with associated parents.

It is the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes
And pleasant scents the noses.

What to see in June

Mark's paths are proving popular and provide access without encouraging diffuse trampling of the wild flowers.

The ugly orange fencing in the middle field has been replaced by a more sympathetic wooden fence, a funnel rather than a kettle, intended to guide the path taken by visitors through the meadows.

A sample of some of the flowers to be seen around the Reserve at present.

The state of the 'wallow' at the bottom of the lower field is an indication of how little rain we have had this spring.
