After the wet and wind of yesterday it was a delight to see some blue sky.

Not surprisingly there is a great amount of water everywhere on the reserve, including Risedale Beck.

Unfortunately there are some conifer trees that have fallen during the severe weather yesterday.  For such tall trees they have a very small rootball.

A reminder that the Christmas Dinner will be held at Wathgill on the 16th December.  Book your place with Matt or Lisa for a really lovely fun evening and a great meal amongst friends and volunteers.  Our Christmas Raffle will be drawn on that evening.  If you would like to donate a prize for our raffle, then please take it to the Field Centre and add it to those already there.  Thank you.

Another celebration will be held on Tuesday 22nd December at Foxglove, this time it is  the volunteers shared lunch.  Food can be brought to the kitchen during the morning and then lunch will be served about one ish!  Everyone will be welcome.

Burns Night will also be held at Wathgill, on the 29th January 2016.  And talking of 2016, the Foxglove Calendar is now on sale, at £6.
