Bodgers and Owls

Sunday, May 17th 2015

The Foxglove Bodgers were at Foxglove today.  These skilled woodworkers could be found outside the workshop, turning wooden bowls on medieval style lathes and making stool legs, using green wood cut from the reserve itself.   Visitors were able to try their hand at these tasks and learn from the experts.

The workers who have been creating our wildfowl feeding platform have made good progress over the week.  Next week hopefully they will be able to complete the task and visitors will be able to walk along the boardwalk to look upon the lake.

The Foxglove Tawny Owl chicks were ringed this afternoon, now that they are getting big.  It is pleasing to see that the pair have managed to rear four chicks.
