A Small Miracle

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

We have many groups of young people come to visit us and we run exciting activities for them to help them enjoy and learn about Foxglove and our wildlife. A firm favourite is pond dipping, as enjoyed by Northallerton Beavers recently.

We ask that our visiting groups of young people are quiet as they go around in an effort to help them to see some of our shyer and more elusive wildlife and sometimes small miracles happen and the wildlife comes out:

A real treat for the Northallerton Beavers to see a water vole close up!

In other news: Today we cleared scrub at the Scrapes, got the area around Plover’s Pool cut and we started raking. Roger also strimmed to clear the area where most of our early purple orchids grow ready for the spring. And we now have sheep to graze the wildflower meadow! More details to come tomorrow!
