We have retained the Green Flag Community Award for 2018/2019 for the Brierdene Wildlife Site. This is the seventh year running that we have received this award.


The Bio Blitz on the last Saturday of the month was a great success with over 30 people attending the event throughout the day. We did have a little rain at the start, but it did improve as the day went on.


The dene top is still in bloom with Yellow Rattle, Meadow Buttercups, Knapweed, Oxeye Daisy and a variety of grasses and other plants. The hot weather but more the lack of rain has restricted the density of some of the plants this year, but we still having a good show along the dene top.


The judge from the R.H.S. will be visiting us on the 1st August, but we will not know the results until later in the year.




BIO BLITZ


We managed to record over a 100 different species on the day, of these 6 had not been recorded before.

These include 4 Bugs and Beetles, 1 Fly and 1 Spider. I am still waiting for the complete list of species recorded from E.R.I.C. More details of these species will be on September’s website.


But at present this brings the total of species recorded in the Brierdene Wildlife Site to 1003; this includes the 4 new species that were found earlier this month before the Bio Blitz. The 1000th species was found and recorded by Paul Stevens from E.R.I.C.
