Flower Walk

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Early Spring sun greeted all those who visited Foxglove today and was a welcome respite from the recent wintery conditions.  The wind was also low - perfect conditions for the ‘Flower Fairies’ monthly flower walk.

They spent the morning combing the reserve looking for any plant in flower.  Today Gorse, Hazel, Primrose and Daisy were all seen. 

This is half the number found at the same time last year; most likely due to the recent cold and snowy weather.

The contractors have been hard at work and have almost completed the path work on the moorland.  Felling of Silver Birch has also continued along the heathland edge, this is being done to help manage the heathland and control the invasive species volunteers spend time weeding out.
