Bits of This and Pieces of That

Monday, November 6th 2017

There is no tale to tell today but bits of this and pieces of that.

Driving in this morning the reserve was white.

The moon was up, or should that be down?

Moon - up or down?

Work called.  The new delivery of books was finally organised onto the shelves.  A lady who looked at them over the weekend took a trip down memory lane with Owl Babies, as this was the story she read to her, now grown up, children.

There are also plenty of new titles for adults.

Baking utensils are are being brought out of cupboards in preparation to make cakes for the Coffee Morning in Richmond Town Hall on Thursday morning.  Thank you.  If you can help, please let us know.  If you want a cup of tea or coffee please drop in and say hello.

The calendars are being printed this week and hopefully they will arrive soon.  Watch this space.

People are already putting their names down for the next Worky Day on 2nd December.

Details of Foxglove's Christmas Dinner are now on the events page.  Please book through the web site, or call the reserve.

We welcome to Foxglove, Steve Scoffin as Senior Reserve Manager and Ian Wilson as Reserve Manager.

By the end of the day the temperature had risen from minus one to a positively tropical plus nine.  The sun was setting over the wetland.

And when I stopped to say good night to Lark and Taurus,

the sky behind them was showing tinges of pink.
