Common Shrew in Mercers Wood

Common Shrew in Mercers Wood

Volunteers were busy yesterday working in the wild flower area, getting it ready for Gainsborough in Bloom. While walking around the wood I found a Common Shrew. Sadly it was dead, but it shows the species is present here.

Painted Ladys and Peregrine Falcon

Today, at about 6.20 pm, a Peregrine Falcon flew over the Morton end of Ropery Road, heading towards the Trent. Meanwhile in Mercers Wood, two Painted Lady butterflies were sparring with each other in flight along one of the main paths through the wood.
