Several volunteers braved the unusually cold June weather and collected funds for Foxglove at Catterick Market today.

Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their precious weekend time to help out with this event, the amount collected will be added up later and will benefit both wildlife and visitors on the reserve.

I would also like to add my thanks to the small band of ringers and volunteers who worked so hard today to complete CES day 5 whilst at the same time rushing down to Catterick Market to rattle the buckets and also escort the Ryedale group around the reserve.  There is no doubt we were pushed and people had to work extra hard and be completely flexible…..but CES 5 is complete, we have a bucket of money from the market and Ryedale much enjoyed their day despite the cold weather. A very serious ‘thank you’ to all concerned.
