Moths, Wreaths, Chipping and Calendars for Sale!

Wednesday, December 7th 2016

We arrived this morning, stopping on the track to gather fresh greenery for the Festive Wreath Event held at the Field Centre.

Glennis and I gathered up the moth trap, which was put out yesterday evening, with limited success, only 3 moths; a Winter Moth, a Carpet and a micro moth which is still to be confirmed. This little chap is about 7mm in length, and believed to be one of the Caloptilia. 
 It was a larger group in today, 16 folk plus one underling.

After a brief introduction by the Reserve Managers the team quickly got on with gusto, Christmas music in the background, producing some fantastic wreaths.

 As you can see from these pics it was a fun, relaxed affair.

The end products

While all the above was going on Colin was in the workshop with the revamped wormery

 In the afternoon we were back outside continuing with the Coppice Block near the Field Centre. This is a big job, but we believe the blood…plenty of sweat …and hopefully no tears… is worth the effort.

To top the day the 2017 Foxglove Covert calendar has finally arrived and is for sale at the reserve Field Centre, priced at £6.

Thank you Foxglove's little helpers - Glennis, Anne Luxmore, Jackie, who's earrings were full of festive fun, and Colin.
