Richmond Methodist Primary School Visit

Friday, May 16th 2014

Children from Richmond Methodist Primary School visited the reserve today to learn about the different habitats found here, and the animals and plants living in these. They spent their day on a minibeast safari, pond dipping and on a nature walk along Risedale Beck.

As the children walked in past the pond dipping platform a Sedge Warbler could be heard singing from its usual perch in the Hawthorn by the reed bed.

Large Red Damselflies were seen basking in the sun on wooden handrails and the stone paths.

We hope you all enjoyed your visit to Foxglove today!
