Froglets and Wooden Owls

Friday, July 8th 2016

A fairly varied day, with the bulk of the focus getting things together for a stall at Wavell Junior School fair (on Catterick Garrison) .

I spent the first hour cutting logs of wood for children to construct/design their own owl as per the 'Alien Owl' produced by one of the children at the fair today. Fairs, or shows like these are a great opportunity for Foxglove Covert to engage with the public and get the word out. With holidays coming we have a full events list for young and old so visit the events page on our web site http://www.foxglovecovert.org.uk/events/.

 

Reserve Manager Stacey, and Sophie, Foxglove's Chairperson, were running the stall which included a treasure hunt, explained the exhibits of tadpoles and caterpillars, as well as informing all of where and what we do.

Barry Evans, a local carpenter, delivered another load of bat, owl, and bird boxes which we hope to put up this autumn and winter to replace the rather worn boxes of this season. Thank you to him for his kind donation.

.

One of the highlights for me, as I was putting grain down on the duck platform, was avoiding froglets who were having a mass exodus from the Lake, there were hundreds of the little fellows.

.......and as always thank you to Colin for filling the bird feeders.
