I spent a wonderful couple of hours at a local National Trust reserve yesterday. The heather was blooming, the gorse just appearing and one area of long grass was teeming with gatekeepers, meadow browns,a variety of my favourite blue butterflies and even some dragonflies. The heather gave some amazing background colour.

This place is in the city of Krasnogorsk, Moscow region. Russia.
The settlement lies on the spurs of the Smolensk-Moscow Upland; the relief gradually decreases from the north-west of the city to the south and southeast, lying in the floodplain of the Moscow river. Ravine erosion processes are common. Absolute elevation marks are in the region of 190-220 meters. The presence of large reserves of groundwater belonging to the Moscow artesian basin and confined to rocks of the Paleozoic age, to deposits of the Jurassic and Cretaceous systems, made it possible to organize reliable water supply to the city from artesian sources.
Krasnogorsk is located within the forest park zone of Moscow. The city is quite densely surrounded by forests, mostly mixed, with individual sections of conifers. The species composition of forest stands is predominantly represented by spruce, birch, aspen. Treeless territories are heavily urbanized.
The environmental situation in the city is deteriorating. In the vicinity of the city, among the most important environmental aspects, a relatively high loss of forests stands out (and the anthropological factor here is only in third place among the reasons: the main ones are adverse weather conditions, as well as pests and diseases). There is a certain pollution of groundwater (there are excess MPC for manganese, lead, cadmium and ammonia). The radiation pollution of the atmosphere in Krasnogorsk is at the level of background values (9 - 17 μR / h).
At this point there is a ski slope about 300 meters long, the slope with a lift and a rental point is called "Chernevskaya SKI Resort". “The decision to equip the hill was made in the fall of 2017. This measure allowed not only to recreate the open ski slope in Krasnogorsk, but also preserved the natural landscape, as well as the appearance of a favorite place of the townspeople. Previously, the territory was planned for capital development, ”specified on the website of the administration of Krasnogorsk.
