Winter Sun at Foxglove

Tuesday, December 30th 2014

This morning a few of our regular volunteers joined us in the sunshine to get out and work off a bit of Christmas excess. We started by completing some woodland management tasks. We removed a few dead trees and overhanging branches along the green route, where there was the possibility they could obstruct the path. We then completed one of our regular tasks of filling the bird feeders and hoppers around the site.

After lunch we went for a walk around the reserve keeping our eyes peeled for signs of life along the way.

Today we were lucky enough to spot a few Redwings (shown below) on the hedgerows of the middle moor. 

We also spotted three Roe Deer, a Sparrowhawk, a flock of Goldfinches and numerous other birds on the lake and around the reserve.

It was good to look back on some of the jobs that had been completed over the last year and ahead to some that are coming up! We were once again reminded of the amount of hard work that volunteers complete that makes Foxglove the special place it is. We really couldn’t do it without you all. So once again our many thanks for all the hard work from everyone over 2014.
