Busy as Always!

Wednesday, April 26th 2017

Nothing out of the usual at Foxglove today – it was busy as always! In the morning two of us headed off to a meeting of the Catterick Training Area Conservation Group, while in the meantime at Foxglove we took delivery of a new bench and Elizabeth lead a Flowers of the Dales flower recording walk.

Their most exciting find of the day was the first early purple orchids in flower!

Come the afternoon we were helping with an MOD conservation training event, which was using us as a useful venue/case study, taking delivery of our raffle tickets for the raffle to be drawn at our Foxglove 25 event (15th and 16th July – save the dates in your diaries!) and trying to catch up with some of the many other odds and ends that always need doing…including getting our latest events list sorted.

The next two events coming up are nest box visits. On these you can join our licensed bird ringers to visit some of the nest boxes in our scheme to observe and learn about the processes of bird ringing and nest monitoring. 

Exciting stuff!
