Foxglove Films

Thursday, February 9th 2012

Volunteers are helping with more and more varied tasks. John Howard from U3A has stitched together this film of Blue Tits that nested in one the Foxglove bird boxes last spring.

Richard Witham has also filmed the birds in the Field Centre garden too.

These films are avilable to watch on the large screen in the Field Centre. Keep an eye on our YouTube page for future clips.

On behalf of the Management Group I would like to thank those that contribute their expertise to these new ideas and opportunities.  There is an abundance of skills at Foxglove and it is a huge credit to everyone that these diverse specialities are harnessed, as they are, and together make up the sum of the whole.  The photographic techniques used here, and those shown a week or so ago, are just another extension of the collective abilities available, and our thanks go to everyone from bottle washers to stock takers to computer programmers and brash burners for the commitment you all give.  What you achieve is acknowledged and very much appreciated.
