Middle Autumn

Friday, November 17th 2017

As autumn progresses into middle autumn, so more leaves fall, opening up views that have been hidden during the summer.  Ferns, like most plants need water, light, soil and nutrients.  This one must be getting all it requires somehow, judging by the length of its fronds.

Closer to the ground Candlesnuff fungus grows on dead and decaying wood.

Marker posts do not make the best of backgrounds for anything to be photographed against but when you see a harvestman with such long legs resting on one, the appeal is just too great.

We are preparing for the Christmas Hamper raffle.  If you would like to make a contribution please leave it at the Field Centre.   A reminder that the Foxglove Calendar is for sale.  Foxglove's Christmas Dinner is to be held on Wednesday 13th December, if you wish to attend please contact the reserve to book your place. 

Finally there are only 3 days and 20 hours left to vote for Foxglove in the Aviva Community Fund Vote.  Thank you to everyone who has voted so far.
