Sunflowers, sundogs, sunsets, and a Saturday Special in September!

Saturday Special!
5th September 2015
'Grasshoppers, crickets and other small things 
that jump and hop at
 Linford Lakes Nature Reserve'
 Simon Bunker, one of our Friends of Linford Lakes Nature Reserve, has recently been spending lots of time at ground level studying some of the smallest creatures that live in our meadows and grasslands: Grasshoppers, Crickets and other things in the order Orthoptera that jump and hop.

He's very kindly going to share his knowledge of where to look, what to listen for, and how to identify Grasshoppers and Crickets and related mini-beasts, and invites you to join him at  

11am - 12.45pm or 2pm - 3.45pm
(£1.50 per person, £3.00 per family)
 The Centre will be open from 10am until 4pm, with all the usual Open Day delights on offer - refreshments including hot and cold drinks, cakes, 2nd hand books, crafts, and Friends to answer questions about the Reserve and its flora and fauna. 

Finally, a few pictures from today at LLNR...


Some things are spectacular, aren't they?

Don't forget to put Saturday 5th September in your diaries!
(....and of course we also look forward to seeing you this coming Sunday, 16th August, for another of our regular Open Days.)
