Had a great time in Trelusback Farm today. Listened to the brilliant talk of Mary Atkinson on Moths and Tony Atkinson on Bats. Later on after lunch, we have an enjoyable walk around the conservation area.
Walk at the Conservation area.
Newt (1st photo) is a salamander in the subfamily Pleurodelinae. The terrestrial juvenile phase is called an eft. Common Frog (2nd photot) is easily our most recognisable amphibian. They have smooth skin and long legs for jumping away quickly. Adults males grow up to 9 cm in length and females up to 13 cm in length. Usually a shade of olive-green or brown (although can be yellow, pink, red, lime-green, cream or black).
Devil's-bit scabious, Dog-Violet and Dandelion.
Some of the lovely Fungi we saw from our walk.
