A Cold Start

Monday, December 29th 2014

The thermometer was reading minus two when we opened up this morning but the sun was soon out and starting to bathe the reserve in a warm glow.

Whilst walking around the back of the lake we startled the family of Roe Deer that are resident here at Foxglove.  This one stopped just long enough to get a photo before bounding away to catch up with the rest.

The frost was thick on many of the plants creating interesting ice formations and making the Gorse look particularly spectacular.

The photo below is taken of the same Gorse as the one above, however this one is on the side that faces the sun and the flowers are out!

Finally just a quick reminder that if anybody would like to work off a bit of festive excess we will be holding the usual Tuesday volunteer day tomorrow and everybody is welcome to come and join us!
