Tidy and Catch-up Day

Monday, December 12th 2016

It was a fairly lonely start to the day as it was just me in the office this morning. What it did allow me to do was catch up on a few jobs such as the Adopt-a-Box paperwork. Folk can sponsor a nest box for a bat, or the smaller passerines such as Blue/Great Tit, Redstart, or Flycatcher. this is priced at £5 per year. If you want a large nest box such as an Owl box they are sponsored at £10 per year. We cannot guarantee what will nest in a box but it is interesting when a new nesting season comes around.

If you want to sponsor a box as a Christmas pressie for someone please follow the link:                                    http://www.foxglovecovert.org.uk/support-us/adopt-a-box-scheme

The afternoon was spent chainsawing logs as habitat piles, and using the leaf blower to clear up the mess around the chipper pile.

This is the last call for our Christmas Party at Wathgill on Wednesday evening. Please follow the link on the web events page or contact the reserve .   http://www.foxglovecovert.org.uk/events/
