Foxglove 25 Celebrations

Monday, July 17th 2017

The sun shone at Foxglove Covert this weekend, bringing out families in large numbers to visit the reserve and enjoy the range of activities on offer. Many photographs were taken over the weekend and below are just a small selection.

The owl pellet dissection session:

The Foxglove Bodgers:

The chainsaw carvers

And to round off the day, the BBQ:

We express our grateful thanks to all of those who helped to make the weekend such a resounding success. It would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of all the volunteers who give up their time to support us.
