SFPT enjoyed a wonderfully warm and sunny open day at our Fromus reserve, yesterday.  Pete Rowberry was up at 5 a.m. to unpack the moth trap and identify the species found.  Visitors enjoyed the sight of new species with glorious names: chinese character, flame-shoulder, square-spot rustic and lunar underwing.  The hedgerows are laden with fruit and the meadows are now all cut yielding 104 bales of hay………and the sloe gin verdict?  It had to be local adnams!!
