19 July 2019 Quite cool with rain approaching: its first intrusions could be felt in the wind. A muscid and an ichneumon sat each on its own rock in Cynthia’s Ridge, presumably enjoying the stored warmth. There was also a fragment of snail shell on one of the rocks indicating a thrush had been in action. Second Meadow Pond was half empty again. Many of the sorrel seedlings are marked with red to a greater or lesser degree.
A small hedge woundwort plant on the western edge of the Second Meadow has had most of its leaves eaten during the night.
