In the Bleak Midwinter

Wednesday, December 30th 2015

In stark contrast to yesterday the weather has set in at Foxglove today. Looking out over the moorland towards the training area gives you a real time, accurate weather forecast of what is heading our way.

Half an hour after the picture above was taken the weather front arrived at the visitors centre bringing with it high winds and a real downpour.

So far we have been lucky (fingers crossed) with minimal weather damage to the reserve, just losing a few small trees, however we are acutely aware of the catastrophic damage the weather over the Christmas period has caused to many and we would like to send you all our best wishes.
