As well as working outside on the habitat maintenance programmes, volunteers are involved in a diverse range of other activities to help keep everything at Foxglove running smoothly.  Today Tony and Jacky were working in the Field Centre completing the monthly stock check for our shop and organising the new books on sale.

Yesterday volunteers were in helping to identify moths from our weekly trapping session and flowers for the monthly survey.  Three species of moth were identified, along with 16 different flowers on the walk.

The Tuesday volunteers will be pleased to hear that the rest of the bird feeders have now been cleaned!  All those that had dried by lunchtime have now been put back out around the reserve; Reed Bunting, Marsh Tit and Chaffinches were amongst the birds spotted enjoying a meal this afternoon.

Thank you to everyone for all of your hard work.  If you are interested in volunteering here at Foxglove there is more information on our website.
