Work on the heath continues

Friday, August 15th 2014

This morning we had a willing group of volunteers from Carillion on site. After a look into the bird ringing room where they released a few birds we ventured out to the heath. We then continued where our Tuesday volunteers left off, by removing the Willow, Hawthorn and Silver Birch trees that are starting to dominate the bottom edge of the heath. Their help was greatly appreciated and another good dent was made in the task.

We also had day 11 of the CES on site today (more information to follow). This afternoon Glennis, Brian and Joan came in to display the wonderful artwork from Artful Animals, this week’s August Antics session.

Next Wednesday’s August Antics session for children will be a minibeast safari, where you can come and explore what lies beneath the undergrowth at Foxglove. Discover the insects, spiders, worms and many more interesting minibeasts that inhabit the area around our purpose built outdoor classroom. There are still places available, please see the News and Events section of our website to book.
