Looking back - 2009

Saturday, November 28th 2015

Looking back over the years it is apparent that some things at Foxglove do not change, whilst others do.  In spring the over-wintering Peacock butterflies emerge to sunbathe and then feed.

In late spring Large Red Damselflies take flight and even though there is plenty of vegetation around, often prefer man-made structures upon which to rest.

Come late autumn the last flowers are hanging on, providing food for insects still on the wing.  Quite often they are decorated with water droplets.

A photograph of the middle moor with all four Highlanders, makes you realise how much the moor has changed.  They were on the moor for several years and did an excellent job improving the land.  Their antics are well remembered.

Possibly the lake and the area around it have seen most work.

This photo was taken in August this year.  Although not from exactly the same spot you can easily see the many changes that have taken place.
