Busy day at Dancersend with two separate work parties. Herts Group finished off our hazel coppicing and Midweek Vols worked in the chalk pits, then had Xmas lunch (baked pots, beans, mice pies, quiz, magic show) in The Forge - lovely day!

Did you know, dew forms into droplets on spiders' webs because the proteins in the web respond to humidity by scrunching into knots where water gathers?

Slow worms are a gardener's best friend! They eat most soft-bodied invertebrates & their absolute favourites are slugs.

DYK many butterflies overwinter in hollow trees or in buildings, but the brimstone butterfly is made of tougher stuff! Ivy is a favourite wintering site and you may spot one covered in ice-crystals among the leaves, waiting for spring’s warmth

DYK...all amphibians hibernate through the cold months. Some choose to shelter at the bottom of a garden pond, digging into the mud.

trees: This Ash tree ⁦⁩ Chilswell Valley has formed a beautiful archway. It also looks like a struggling creature trying to drag itself out of the boggy ground. It’s progress halted by the upright growth on its back searching for light.⁦

From a distance, lapwing can look black and white - but when they catch the light you can see the beautiful iridescence of their feathers.
