Met up with Karl P for a walk around the complex. Cold and wet under foot!

Kingfisher at Swan Lake called and then flew over the (flooded) tunnel. 2 Common Gulls amongst the dozens of Black-headeds. 8 Cormorant on the pool and more overhead. A few Redwing about and a Bullfinch called. Jay.

On Manners a single G C Grebe, several Tufties and a Reed Bunting in the pool-side scrub. Small charm of Goldfinches drinking from the water in the pathway. Kestrel over Pewit Carr.

Jim and Karl.

Dutchman’s Pipe – Ilkeston speciality

November 27, 2012 in Plants and Flowers by Jim Steele

I notice the Yellow Bird’s Nest plant found by Ross Purdy at Ilkeston has its own paragraph in the Feature article of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s ‘Wild Derbyshire’ Magazine (Winter 2012 pg 29). The rarity of this plant in the County is noted. I do not know whether DWT has taken any more action in terms of possible protection – does anyone else? My attempts to contact Ross by email earlier in the year did not bear fruit, incidentally.
