Water Famous Vole!

Monday, July 4th 2016

Did you see us in the paper at the weekend? Not us, as in the Reserve Managers, this time, but instead one of our (far-cuter-than-us) Water Voles as photographed by Glennis!

It’s been another lovely day at Foxglove. The damselflies have been out and about, including this beautiful pair photographed mating.

First time visitors to the reserve saw a Water Vole and our feeders have been busy with birds, including plenty of visits by the Greater-Spotted Woodpeckers and also these young Great Tits (a ring can be seen on the bird on the left). These were mostly likely hatched and ringed in nest boxes at Foxglove, so it’s especially lovely to see them!
