Quiz Results and Things

Friday, June 3rd 2016

There was slightly more sun today, which is hopefully a sign of more to come over the weekend - the weather forecast looks good, so do come to Foxglove and enjoy the sunshine here! The bees have been returning with pollen baskets full and the flowers are starting to show themselves in greater numbers, hopefully more to come!

Early Purple Orchids

As always Colin filled the bird feeders in preparation for the CES on Sunday, there have been a few Siskin juveniles around the Field Centre, so the ringing on Sunday may give us some young birds to process. Thank you to Colin, below, for his help again.
