Life grows on at the Lagoon
The tiny young frog pictured above was one of several seen hopping about at the Lagoon. They were between the water and the protective hibernaculum we made with logs recycled from our recent coppicing activities.
Large amounts of wildflowers continue to flourish in the meadow beside the Lagoon and some are spreading over the fence and down the sides, providing cover for wildlife and helping to prevent erosion of the steep chalk banks.
This week's species include Wild Carrot and two large clumps of Burdock. The Cut-leaved Germander is also doing well this year.
