One of our ecologists was lucky to spot this lovely rosy footman moth during a dusk bat survey in Sway last night, what a beauty. The caterpillars feed on various lichen..

Creeping thistle had really started to take over the piece of land at Wilkswood. During a couple of practical days, some of the staff got really stuck into removing it by hand, ensuring to get the roots, before it had a chance to flower and set seed again.  We came across so many amazing invertebrates, including small and large skippers, marbled white butterflies and hundreds of grasshoppers. This beautiful female Roesels Bush-Cricket was one of many we saw.

One of our ecologists had a cracking reptile survey yesterday with these beautiful adders and grass snake and over 100 slow worms under the survey mats. The weather conditions must have been perfect!
