Morel boosting

May has been a rather awkward month for finding things. Partly due to the weather and partly due to the fact I was busy doing other things.

However, May did spring a surprise when Doug Fairweather discovered this Thimble Morel at Tophill Low NR, East Yorkshire at the start of the month. Much time has been spent looking for this species over the years, it has perhaps only been recorded on less than five occasions in the site's history.

After the first records last year, Adela reaumurella has been seen throughout May. This one of the 20 or so individuals found across Tophill Low last weekend.

The weather has held the Odonata season back compared to past years. A few mature Large Red Damselflies were seen last weekend, though little wanted to fly in the cold.

Now with better weather, no doubt more to see which will mean I can blog a little more!
