Monday 4th.October 2010

An afternoon walk around Hayes Farm .

Common Darters , in tandem and ovipositing in puddles along the track .

Common Field Speedwell - Veronica persica .

Sloes , the fruits of the Blackthorn , ready to be made into Sloe Gin .

A flight of Mallard over the Trout Fishery , which is completely overgrown with Canadian Waterweed .

Finally managed to identify Shaggy Soldier-Galinsoga , a member of the Daisy family , found last year , but un-identified .

A member of the Dock family , Redshank-Polygonum persicaria .

A single specimen of Sun Spurge-Euphorbia peplus was found .
