Large numbers of glow-worms sighted

Despite the poor weather over the previous 48 hours, those who went on the mid-summer day glow-worm walk, organised by the Hodnet Footpaths Group, had a rewarding evening.

The six people who went along spotted the colony’s highest count of displaying females this year. Fifty-nine individuals in all were seen – not the all-time record, but certainly a sign of a good population.

For more information on glow-worms see the UK Glow-worm Survey website.

Anyone interested in joining a future glow-worm walk should contact the Footpaths Group’s secretary by email.

Update: A second walk the following Friday counted 65 displaying females, putting the first week’s count in the shade.
