Michael Syddall Primary School Visit

Thursday, July 17th 2014

Pupils from Michael Syddall Primary School in Catterick village visited the reserve today. The children were treated to fantastic weather which meant there were a huge number of insects on the wing for them to see as they enjoyed the three activities we had planned for them.

Common Blue butterflies were seen in good numbers around the pond dipping platforms throughout the day as they fed on the flowers found around these ponds.

Common Blue Damselflies were seen across the reserve with several turning up in sweep nets on the moorland during our minibeast safari.

We hope you all enjoyed your visit to Foxglove today and that you will be back to visit again soon!
