Exciting News

Tuesday, April 8th 2014

Foxglove saw some exciting news today with Lord Zetland being announced as patron of the reserve.

He was greeted by staff and volunteers, along with some freshly home baked cakes before being taken on a guided walk of the reserve to see some of the recent habitat developments.

We visited the new terraced pools above the lake, which were looking fantastic in the fine weather.

We then crossed the moorland where volunteers have been busy planting out the Yellow Rattle plugs on the wildflower meadow.

Meanwhile volunteers have been busy starting one of the Spring jobs; checking and weeding out the 700 plus tree tubes from recent planting work.

This task while not the most exciting, was completed with enthusiasm. About one third of the tubes are now checked, we promise you can do something different next week!

Thank you to everyone who has helped out today from the outside team and from everyone involved this afternoon.
