Christmas Eve

Friday, December 24th 2010

On the last day before Christmas all was quiet on the Foxglove front.  The sun shone from a blue, blue sky and backlit the Phragmites at the scrapes, giving them a golden halo.

The birds could be heard flitting through the trees and there was much activity at the feeders.

At the lake the trees had an almost autumnal glow about them as the sun caught their tops.

Although Foxglove Field Centre is closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day you are still welcome to have a walk around the reserve.  Access is as usual through the barracks and it is likely that the centre will be open for a couple of hours at least on Boxing Day.

Have a lovely Christmas everyone, however you choose to enjoy it.
