Woodhall dean was the venue for a large party on April 17th. The old Packhorse Bridge stands out in the watery sunshine.
A Skinner Moth trap set the night before remarkably caught 160 individuals of 17 species.
The catch included several Pine Beauty moths, often a pest when numerous.
The first bus trip of the year was to Cocklawburn, near Scremerston just south of Berwick- May 22nd.
The cliff-top calcareous grassland was showing off its calcicole plants such as Bloody Cranesbill.
The rock pools had many invertebrates such as this Hermit Crab living in a Periwinkle.
A sunny shelf half-way up a sand dune was a place to bask after lunch.
