Alderford Lake - Birds, Bugs & Bats
A gentle stroll to look at the birds and insects around the lake,
later on to look and listen for bats with the help of some bat
30 people took part and walked round the lake looking at the birds
especially the Great crested grebe family. The chicks may be as big as
mum and dad but are quite happy to let their parents do the fishing!
The children found various insects in the vegetation, including violet
and irridescent green beetles. The latter Chrysolina herbacea was found on the water mint.
As darkness fell, out
came the bat-detectors and after limited success amongst the trees, we
went over the bank and pointed the detectors at the surface of the
lake. They went beserk! Scores of bats, including Daubentons, were
feeding low over the water.
