Cricket Watch

Our Cricket Watch on August 17, 2014 was attended by Keith Dodd,  Steve Plant, Alan Jones, Peter Hill and myself.

This was a visit to look for bush crickets. The weather had, in the previous few days, turned much cooler, rain threatened, and I feared we would not find many, if any, crickets. I need not have worried. In the company of such experts and enthusiasts, we found plenty - bush crickets, grasshoppers and many other insects, and it was a really interesting afternoon. The sun even shone.

Our findings were mainly from just two promising areas, where I had previously found some crickets. So it's likely that we have a healthy population of both species around the reserve.

What are Darley & Nutwood Priorities for the next three years?
