Northdale Visit

Friday, September 4th 2015

Northdale Horticulture paid a visit to Foxglove today to learn about the reserve and the flora and fauna that make Foxglove their home. We went on a walk in the morning and the group were very good at spotting the different plants and animals on their worksheets.

In the afternoon we spent some time pond dipping, delving into the scrapes looking for many of the small creatures that live beneath the surface. Amongst other things we found Sticklebacks, Pond Snails and Whirligig Beetles.

We then finished the afternoon with a spot of bird watching in the lake hide.

A fun day was had by all and we really enjoyed their visit.
