Work Experience at Foxglove

Friday, November 20th 2015

On Thursdays and Fridays for the last few months we have been joined by Jonathan, who is completing his work experience with us for his Countryside Management degree at Askham Bryan. We have been putting him through his paces, completing lots of practical management tasks around the reserve. This morning he helped fill all the feeders.

Then this afternoon we continued to burn the brash that had accumulated from the woodland work undertaken over the last few weeks.

We then planted a few Oak saplings that had been kindly donated to us by David, a regular visitor and volunteer.


Jonathan will be with us for the rest of his academic year however, we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his hard work, as he has been a great help over the last few months and is a really good addition to the team.
