Sky Watch Friday

Todays photo was taken from the entrance to the local nature reserve where I help out with the management (Rodden Nature Reserve). This is on the outskirts of Frome and was created by the Supermarket that wanted to build their superstore there. See our website at http://www.roddennaturereserve.org.uk/ to find out what has been seen on the reserve.

Thats a very nice area Jen. I guess a visit means a bit of bird watching followed by a bit of shopping?

Hi Roy,
Yes, when I heard that Asda were building there, I was pretty annoyed, but I have to admit that the shop is handy for little forgotten items and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Birding comes first though! (-:

Nice that their trade off for the environment was successful and not just for show. Looks like a lovely spot.

Hi Wren

Yes, we're gradually doing surveys for birds, plants, moths, bugs etc to build up a picture of what is there and also what comes along as the site matures. It's a great thing to be a part of.

That looks like a great place. It must be rewarding to work there. I'm glad they preserved all of this.
