Business as usual

Friday, March 2nd 2018

We were greeted this morning by some monstrous icicles hanging from the Field Centre, the largest of which was 153cm!

Unfortunately due to the risk of them damaging the gutters they had to be removed, and have been left on the porch for anyone that wants to have a look at them.

I think it may have been the first day this week where we didn't need to clear the paths around the Field Centre. One thing that hasn't changed however is our regular visits to the Moorland to check up on Lark and Taurus who are doing just fine.

Aside from making sure that the ponies are well fed we've been busy filling up all of the feeders around the reserve in preparation for the weekend, and compiling this year's events calendar. We are hoping to link in with such national and international events as 'Walk in the Woods Month', 'Plant Conservation Day', 'Insect Week', and 'International Bat Night' to name but a few.

The reserve has played host to many bird species today, including Redpoll, Long-Tailed Tits, Rooks, and Siskin around the Field Centre, with the first visit from our female Sparrowhawk in a week too!

We continue to see the two Snipe taking shelter under the boardwalk on our many trips back and forth filling up bird feeders, and have even been graced by an appearance of a large flock of Fieldfare up on the Moorland this afternoon.
