The Day of Photo Judging

Friday, September 22nd 2017

Today was judging day for our calendar photo competition. Thank you to all who entered – you didn’t make it easy for our judge to decide! This year’s judge was Brigadier (Retd) Mark Conroy. He was the first chairman at Foxglove Covert and is also an artist – an appropriate choice, we thought, to find someone who has been involved with Foxglove for so long, on this, the 25th year of our reserve!

We have contacted all who have had photos selected for the calendar by email. Here’s a sneaky peek at next year’s calendar photos:

We plan to put all entries on a display in the Field Centre in the next few weeks so they can ALL be enjoyed. In the meantime the preparation and printing of the calendar is starting, so watch this space!

Today we also hosted a visit from Beverley School who learnt about what’s happening at this time of year with a guided walk around the reserve and also discovered some of our mini-beasts.

Practical tasks around the reserve continued as ever, including filling of the main bird feeders by Colin – thank you –

and continuing work on cutting the smaller meadows.
