Misty Magic

Wednesday, September 14th 2016

It’s been a damp and misty day at Foxglove today – making it perfect for viewing cobwebs…

…and getting slugs out and about.

Why not try coming in weather like this to get photos for our photo competition?

I think the woods to the south of Risedale Beck (on our ‘green route’) are beautiful at any time of the year, but I particularly liked the contrast in light through our ‘magic tree’ today.

Amongst some odds and ends we’ve been busy today with some bracken bashing…

…levelling paving slabs, tidying in the garden and pulling more scrub on the heath.

I also got very excited to find evidence of one of our bat boxes in use when I found these bat droppings underneath (finger shown for scale)!
