Track Closure

Monday, August 31st 2015

On Wednesday 2nd September the entrance track to Foxglove will be closed for maintenance. We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause, but it will be to everyone’s advantage once the track is again free from potholes! The reserve will remain open as usual but visitors should expect to park on the parade square and walk from the main entrance gate. With this in mind, there will be no moth trapping on Tuesday night.

Bank Holiday Monday was very quiet at Foxglove, with only a handful of visitors. It was a grey and damp day with a definite autumnal feel about it. Some of the leaves are starting to change to reds and browns and the fruits and berries are ripening well.  Mike, one of or regular visitors, got good sightings of one of the Roe Deer this morning, down on the wildfowl feeding platform.

The freshly cut hay meadow smelt particularly fragrant in the damp air. We are waiting for some good drying weather so this can be baled and removed from the reserve. 

Once this is cleared we will be able to put livestock onto the site to help trample the wildflower seeds into the earth.
