Foxes Bridge Wildlife Survey

Grid Ref SO 644 138

 

Further data collected in our Wildlife Survey.

 

The Brown China-Mark moth, our 'aquatic' micro moth.Unusually, the larvae are entirely aquatic, feeding on water plants in ponds, lakes and canals

 

Tiger Moth - The conspicuous patterns on its wings serve as a warning to predators because the moth's body fluids are poisonous.

 

Pyramidal Orchid - Orchid seeds do not store enough food to grow on their own, so they team up with a mat-forming fungus in the soil. In turn, the orchid’s roots protect the fungus.
