New Toy

The Friends of Hastings Country Park NR recently received Lottery Funding for the purchase of a range of study and presentation equipment. Amongst this is a digital  microscope, a small device which plugs into a  computer and stores images on it at the click of a mouse.

Having just taken delivery of this on behalf of the Friends, and never having used one before, I was keen to try this , and have been installing and trying it out today.

So here is my first image, of the end of a piece of Rhytidiadelpus squarrosus, or Springy Turf Moss, which seems to be the main constituent of our front lawn [meadow] at this time of year.
