Volunteering – 16.03.14

Volunteered with the Solway Wetlands today at Finglandrigg to plant devils bit scabious to help the habitat to attract the Marsh Fritillary butterfly!

After planting 220 of these plants we walked to an area where the Marsh Fritillary baby caterpillars are! They were all clustered together and were rather small!

Unfortunately I forgot my camera this morning so didn’t get any pictures, but it was a good day nonetheless! 🙂

But on the good side, the Solway Wetland uploaded some pictures to facebook! Here are a few links, be sure to check them out!

Digging away 🙂
