I did a little poll to see which challenge people thought I should focus on most. 85% said the reserves challenge. Well recently I've managed to get to Fox Glove Covert and to Nosterfield. Today I managed to get to three Yorkshire Wildlife Trust reserves, two new ones and an old favourite! They were quite close together so we decided to make a day of it and I went to the new ones in the morning, had lunch and then to the old favourite.

|Red Campion at Burton Leonard|
|Gorse at Staveley|
|Hogweed (?) at Staveley.|
We also saw another Barn Owl as we walked back towards the car, just as it was getting to dusk.
Not a bad first day out for 2016 and while it was grey it wasn't raining all the time!
