The month of June has brought vandalised viewpoints and mournfully low moth numbers, but the Fen is still 'Great' in more ways than one.
It's 50 years since the international designation of important wetlands began, and what a year to highlight their contribution to the quantity and quality of freshwater on our planet!
Stonechats were up on the higher ground, relatively speaking, during the Christmas floods, but life goes on during lockdown.
The story of our research into stonechat movements, within and beyond the Great Fen, continues.
As part of our research into stonechat movements within and beyond the Great Fen, we will be posting periodic blogs about this project.
Saturday evening provided an opportunity to learn more about the wildlife of the Great Fen, by joining the annual bat walk, which has been running for nearly 10 years.
This month marked the resumption of some of our public outdoor events. Over the weekend, I led a couple of small guided walks in the Great Fen, hunting for dragonflies.
Location: Woodwalton Fen
119 moths of 44 species
