Looking for something to do?

Wednesday, July 13th 2016

There is a lot going on here at Foxglove to get involved with! Last night our moth trap was out and today volunteers identified, recorded and released the moths caught, such as this lovely brimstone moth.  Come on a Wednesday morning (9am) to join them and our moths.

Yesterday our practical volunteers were out helping with site management. This happens every Tuesday and Thursday with tasks varying from week to week.

There are our one-off events.  We have holiday events for families including pond dipping and mini-beast hunting, especially fun for primary-school aged children. For ages 7 upwards our Owl Pellets for Families gives you a chance to discover more about owls and what they eat.

We now have details of our Summer BBQ – the same day as our family dragonfly walk ‘Dragonfly Discovery’. Events for adults include various walks (our next is a Flower Walk on 25th July at 6pm) and workshops, including an Owl Pellets for Adults (photos from the last adult owl pellet workshop below - all the bones were from one pellet!). More events are still in planning! Keep an eye on our events page: http://www.foxglovecovert.org.uk/events/

Then of course, you can also just come for a visit. There’s our observation bee hive, water voles, orchids, damselflies, touch screen quiz, kingfishers, wildflower meadow, etc…and our peace for meditation, paths to jog, inspiration for art and outdoors to give the kids some fresh air! Hoping to see you here at Foxglove soon!
