Fraggle Report- Teeside Nature Reserve-July 2017

Sophie and I had an epic trip out a couple of weekends back. Ostensibly we went to see the Nature reserve, and maybe the seals at Seal Sands, which we did, but then did a tour of the huge industrial estate next to the reserve, stopping to take photo’s along the way, until at the end a nice man came out of a guard box and told us we weren’t allowed in there let alone to take photo’s :). He then pointed out that the rules were a bit daft as anyone with google earth could see the whole shebang from above. We’d finished anyway, so off we went. A good day out!

We could see the industrial site on the way to the reserve, so had a stop to get the big thingy here.

then on to the nature reserve

There were loads of Burnet moths around, very pretty

and snails

and I saw a woolyboy

and a beautiful butterfly

stay tooned!

  1. Nice work, FR. I can never tell the difference between a moth and a butterfly, but I like those Burnet Moths. Don’t think I have ever seen one.
    All I know is that if they come in the house at night, and fly around a light, then they’re moths…
    Best wishes, Pete.
