Spot the Pinecone!

Wednesday, January 4th 2017

Today was a day of odds and ends, with, among other things, trying to track down photos to confirm some of our moth records…

…continuing the clear-up of the coppicing on the south-facing bank down to Risedale Beck from the wetland…

…and showing a proud new adopter of one of our bird boxes his box!

We still have some boxes without sponsors for this nesting season (cue sad faces and ‘awww’ sounds), so if you fancy adopting one of these please check out our website or speak to a reserve manager. By sponsoring one of our boxes you will be helping to fund our conservation work, improving habitats for many species. We monitor the use of our habitat boxes and as a sponsor of one you receive an annual report in the autumn of who’s been using them!

In other news; I’m certainly feeling like I’ve done well for food over the festive season, but our wildlife doesn’t have it so easy. To stay alive over the winter they adopt a range of strategies (depending on species) including hibernation, migration, defending territories or caching food. We found someone’s food cache today high in a hazel tree – spot the pinecone!

As we came in for the evening we were treated to this lovely view of the moon over the trees.

Have a lovely day and we hope to see you here at Foxglove soon!
