Richmond Methodist School Visits

Monday, May 19th 2014

Richmond Methodist Primary School came to Foxglove today for the last of their three junior school visits to the reserve. The children were able to enjoy the glorious sunshine and were pleased to be able to play in the dams at the outdoor classroom to cool off - some managed to stay relatively dry!

Many different types of minibeasts were found under the logs including the first centipede found on a school visit this year! In the ponds leeches were spotted and caused a stir as they tried to climb out of the sinks!

In other news the ringers have been very busy checking the many nest boxes on the reserve and the wider training area. To date 49 Tawny Owls have been ringed, 8 Dipper chicks and 1 adult (below) as well as 2 adult Kestrels, with many more chicks than last year to go back to. They are starting the small nest boxes this week hoping for good numbers of Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts.
