Valiant Volunteers

Tuesday, September 30th 2014

The full story of Foxglove's 'Valiant Volunteers' will be reported on tomorrow's blog. Suffice to say they cut and moved Gorse, removed the reeds from the pond clearance, strimmed the paths, carried out the last butterfly survey of the year and er um helped with the cattle!  Making tea and washing up were also on the list!  A huge thank you to everyone who helped during today with so many jobs.  Your work and support are really, really appreciated.

The Dales School visited and went minibeast hunting.  They found earthworms, woodlice, slugs and tiny spiders, all of which were examined using magnifying glasses.  More of the unknown insect that was shown on the blog on Saturday were also found.  We now think this is the larva of a lacewing.  

Common Darters were flying and resting in the sunshine for the children to see.
