In some exciting news for Prax Lindsey Oil Refinery, for the very first time, box bugs (Gonocerus Acuteangulatus) have been discovered at Burkinshaw’s Covert – the 91-acre woodland owned by the refinery that is home to an eclectic mix of wildlife and a growing number of plant species. According to Alan Jones, Conservation Officer at Humber Nature Partnership, this seems to reflect the changing extent of range in many invertebrates, such as the Willow Emerald Damselfly, which is now found more commonly at the Covert, and the Silver Washed Fritillary butterfly, which is now starting to be seen pretty regularly on site.
