Out and Around

Sunday, November 20th 2016

We often say that there is always something to be found whilst out and around at Foxglove, no matter what the season or weather.

On Wednesday whilst exploring for fungi, Chris and Brian found this caddis fly.  After we had all taken photographs and checked them, we suspected that people would say we had placed it so perfectly, on a branch with moss and lichen on show.  We did not, honest!

On Saturday, Brian, doing the weekly jobs found some Honeysuckle in flower.  Unfortunately I do not have his photo, so one from earlier in the year will suffice, as an example.  I hasten to add that Brian's had no insects around it!


Walking quietly onto the bridge two Mallard were spotted sitting on the tree.

Many of the Oak leaves are now brown but the sun was catching these making them and their shadows stand out amongst the vegetation.

Autumn is heading into winter but Hazel is already preparing for next spring as its catkins are beginning to increase in size.
