First News from the North ...

Friday, June 28th 2013

Well it is just further North! The ringing team started their journey at 0615 and headed to the A66 via Arkengarthdale.  It took them a little while as they ringed one Lapwing chick, 2 Golden Plover chicks and five Curlew chicks on the way.  This was Fran's first Curlew.  At this age they appear to be all legs and very long ones at that!

Last message said they were heading to Perth after a coffee stop.

Meanwhile back at Foxglove volunteers were busy doing a variety of tasks including mowing the lawn in the back garden, which was bee free, filling bird feeders, checking dams, checking tree tubes and pruning overgrown pathways.

Thank you very much for your help.
