Dates for Your Diary

Wednesday, February 10th 2016

Walking around the reserve today in the lovely winter sunshine, an Alder tree was observed starting to flower.  Pictured here are the male flowers, also known as catkins, they are about two inches long,  Alder are monoecious, which means they produce both male and female flowers on the same tree.  The smaller female flowers resemble cones and are red in colour.

Just a final reminder that it is the Foxglove AGM tomorrow, starting at 7pm, up at Wathgill. All are welcome to attend and refreshments will be served.

On a different note, next week sadly we say goodbye to Matt, who has been a Reserve Manager at Foxglove for over a year and half.

We intend to send him off in style however, with a bring and share lunch on Tuesday 16th February, all are welcome to attend.
