Carlton Marsh

A big thank you to members of our Wildlife Group, who did a fantastic cleaning up job in the car park area recently, in readiness for the Yorkshire In bloom Competition coming up soon.
Two Little Ringed Plovers were seen copulating this morning on the Wader Scrape (Jim Plant). Also of note today, Grey Wagtail and Peregrine.
A Large Skipper butterfly was our first this year.

A Humming-bird Hawk-moth was in Chris Parkin's Barnsley Road garden feeding on Spur Valerian and Verbena.
