Visiting a Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

With a fresh covering of snow overnight Foxglove was looking at its best, glistening in the low winter sun.

We were joined at lunch by Rishi Sunak, the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Richmond in the General Election. He sat and spoke to volunteers and friends listening to their passionate descriptions of the reserve, the wildlife and the fantastic community that can be found here supporting Foxglove on whatever day you choose to visit.

Volunteers could also be found out and about on the reserve as the clearance work continued after the recent storms. Brash from five more trees was cleared away this morning.

Once work in the woodland was completed, they turned their hands to building the new feeding station for the wetland. A baffle was created out of an old oil drum to keep squirrels from reaching the feeders. Once the paint has dried and the winds have dropped this will be installed close to the Wetland Hide.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us here today, all of your help is really valued and makes such a big difference to the reserve.
