Glow worms found in Chadlington hedgerow

A local resident has let the Editor know that they “went on a glow worm hunt with the Wychwood Project a couple of weeks ago to Swinbrook, where they spotted some of these elusive creatures, then when we returned at about 11:15pm to the village, we stopped the car on a hunch and spotted 3 glow worms!



The latin name is Lampyris noctiluca and it is the females that are glowing around this time of year, hoping to attract a mate. Their natural habitat is long grass, so this is one more reason why not to trim every verge in sight!”
