Moldram's Ground

JOIN OUR VOLUNTEERS GROUP!

Moldram's Ground is a beautiful 4-acre nature reserve in the parish of Pen Selwood, a valuable habitat including four ponds and wetlands. Two ponds are home to a successful population of Great Crested newts. There are excellent specimen trees on site, some scrubby areas, rough grasslands and wetlands. A low impact bird hide provides cover for bird watching and a boardwalk completes an un-surfaced walking loop of the site. Although there isn't a dedicated ranger, the sites team regularly visit to undertake project works and maintain the site together with the help of local volunteers. Check out our PAGES.

Msg from Bernard

I had a call from a lady whose property is 75 m from Moldrams Ground nature reserve. She followed up with a couple of pics she took showing a dormouse eating nuts from her squirrel-proof peanut feeder. Not only was this in daylight (dormice are nocturnal), but there is no arboreal route to the reserve, but only a wooden fence. When the dormouse had eaten its fill, it went to sleep between the inner and outer sections of the feeder. Concerned for its safety, she struggled to wake it up. It then scampered up into the tree. This is a very rare event. Pics attached.

Rene pointed out this fun webcam to watch barn owls in a nesting box, location somewhere in East Somerset.

Well done Richard....what exciting news.

I assume you also kindly signed the AVAAZ petition to save the Barn Owls petition which came in last week.  If not and anyone else has not seen or voted then please get in touch with me and I will forward it on to to....

All the best,

Annie Harvey.
