Report from May 31 Work Morning

This was a work morning with a difference, exploring the Reserve with the new Nature Journal.

Flora we spotted included hay rattle (a partly parasitic plant, drawing nutrient from grass), bird's foot trefoil (otherwise known as bacon and eggs), cowslip seed pods, campion, and twayblade (one of the orchid family)

We identified many different bird species including wren, song thrush and green woodpecker.
