What a busy week

Friday, August 22nd 2014

Yesterday we finished fixing the fence and gate by the wetland hide. The area is now stock proof and the gate post is upright and will last for many years to come. This has been an ongoing job for the last week or so. We have been waiting for the concrete footing to set and we have been fitting the job in around a very busy week at Foxglove. We would like to thank everyone that has worked on it and hope you would agree that it now looks better than ever.

Today has been a busy day at Foxglove with lots of visitors and quite a few of the regular volunteers stopping by. We have spent most of the day getting the site looking its best for the bank holiday weekend. The visitors centre will be open all weekend from 10:00-16:00 so we hope that as many of you as possible will make it to Foxglove. There is plenty to see with an abundance of wildflowers and insects, like this Hoverfly that was spotted today on a flowering Devil’s Bit Scabious.

Next Wednesday it’s the last of our August Antics sessions for children. We will be spending an hour or so pond dipping, delving into the ponds at the scrapes to see what creatures lurk beneath the surface. We still have places available so please see the News and Events Section of the website for how to book.
