Wednesday Talk

Wednesday, November 13th 2013

Visitors and volunteers alike enjoyed an informative slideshow given by Sophie this morning looking at the flora and fauna of Foxglove Covert.  The talk highlighted some of the more interesting species observed on the reserve over the last few months - you can just see a Nightjar on the screen which was a visitor to the ringing room in August.  Unseen footage of Water Voles feeding in the scrapes was also shown, don't worry though if you missed the presentation as the footage will be uploaded to the blog in the next few days!

More talks are planned for in the new year so keep an eye on our events page to be sure you don't miss out.

Thanks Sophie, a really good informative talk, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Lovely to see all the photographs of so much of Foxglove’s flora and fauna. (Don’t think I will ever see white transit vans in the same light again though!)  The Otters and Water Vole are so special, not sure about the Rat! Suppose he was quite cute.
