Work starts on new land
Work has started on the ‘Margaret Partridge Plot’!
On Sunday 12th April 2015 we broke new ground by working on the new strip of land which we acquired, thanks to members’ generosity, in 2013.

FoSL have been fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to set up a display in Rickmansworth Museum in March. The plan is to create a display that reflects the diversity of wildlife in and around Stockers Lake Nature Reserve. By informing residents about the work FoSL does to preserve this valuable local Reserve, we hope that the exhibit will attract new members who will actively support our Association. Any ideas?

Updated Butterfly and Dragonfly walk report
A brief report by Barbara James of our August 2014 butterfly and dragonfly walk was provided in the October 2014 FoSL newsletter. However a more detailed, illustrated version written by walk leaders Jane Archer (Dragonflies) and Cliff Buckton (Butterflies) is now on our event reports page or available from here.
Butterfly Survey 2014
As in previous years, a small but dedicated band of enthusiasts have recorded butterfly sightings during the summer of 2014. Each week, a recorder walked around the Lake recording all butterflies seen. Thanks to our excellent team of butterfly recorders, Carol and Dick Beeden, Cliff and Jacky Buckton, Carrol Scott, and leader Barbara James, we have some interesting results. For full details please download our 2014 butterfly survey report from here. Alternatively, read on for a brief synopsis of the main findings.
