Valuable Volunteers

Tuesday, April 17th 2012

So far this year volunteers have contributed an amazing 734 days of work at Foxglove. Although there is no money involved if you multiply this figure by £50 it equates to £36,750 in monetary terms and really does make a huge difference to the reserve benefiting both wildlife and visitors alike.

Well earned break

Tasks carried out today included clearing away storm damage, stone picking to prepare the ground for the wild bird seed crop and removing tree protectors from young trees that had outgrown them. Thank you everyone yet again for helping us to tick off a few more jobs from the ever increasing list!

There are lots of events coming up in the next few weeks and some of them are fully booked already so it is well worth checking out the events section if you would like to take part in any of them. Finally, there are ground breeding birds on the reserve now and in order to protect them it is paramount that dogs are kept on their leads.
