A Sunny Summer Day

Monday, June 6th 2016

Today at Foxglove was glorious and sunny. A group from Northdale Horticulture came to visit to have a look at our reserve as they are hoping to create a small conservation area of their own.

Roger took them out for a guided tour around the reserve and showed them the different habitats we have and how we manage them. Afterwards they completed some conservation tasks of their own, cutting back encroaching vegetation in the Woodland and from our Heath.

We have some attractive flowers out on the reserve at present. These include Ragged Robin and Ramsons (Wild Garlic).

Something particularly nice today were the Willow seeds which, over the last couple of days, have been spreading themselves across the reserve. At times it appeared to be snowing, as the fluffy white seeds blew in the breeze across the reserve to settle gently in piles along the pathways and in the grass. In some places it almost looked like it had been snowing!

Don’t forget tomorrow is our Volunteer Lunch at the Field Centre, for anyone who helps us in any way!
