Summer Sightings

posted 6 Jul 2012, 06:42 by Haley Whittall
Despite the wet weather, there have still been plenty of wildlife sightings in and around our local nature reserves. We have found breeding evidence of the spectacular Golden-ringed dragonfly at the Ghyll for the first time, and have also found the Bullhead, a fish protected under European legislation, in the streams at both The Ghyll and the Country Park. See our blog for further details.
 
Our Threatened Species Project summer survey programme is proving very productive with good numbers of adders, grass snakes and slow worm being found at our survey sites. These events which run throughout the summer are good opportunities to see reptiles and dormice at close quarters. See our Events page for details of how you can get involved.
