The Fox and the Shrew!

Wednesday, September 19th 2012

Pupils from Carnagill Community Primary School visited today and explored and discovered what Foxglove has to offer in Autumn. They went on a nature walk, played animal games, dammed the beck at the classroom and did some artwork in the plantation. This handsome fox picture was made by one of the groups!


Later in the afternoon this shrew was spotted out and about and was so busy feeding that it was oblivious to the photographer!


Hundreds of Common Darter dragonflies and plenty of Speckled Wood butterflies were still on the wing during the sunny spells. The most common moth in the trap this morning was Sallow.
