Large Heath butterfly, four jawed spider, common heath moth and peppered moth were some good additions towards my new target. I saw some sundew but none containing any prey.
As we neared the end of our survey someone detected a wood tiger moth almost hidden in the undergrowth. It had been a marvelous day which ended with a visit to a farm selling locally made ice cream
The rest of the month was very busy with education visits, pond dipping sessions and guided walks at both Cuerden Valley Park and the Wildlife Trust's Brockholes reserve. This meant less time searching for species but I was still able to add weld, purple loose-strife and brown hawker dragonfly to my score.
