Meet Foxglove’s New Ranger

Friday, October 20th 2023

Hi, I'm El, the new Ranger here to tell you a little bit about myself and my first week on the reserve.

I'm a passionate conservationist and I have previously worked on urban and island reserves. I love bird watching and spent some of my teenage years bird ringing with the Swaledale Ringing Group here at Foxglove. I am really keen to create and maintain natural spaces for the benefit of wildlife and people. 

I just started this Monday but have already been busy working with two military groups to rake grass in the meadow and clear rushes and reeds in one of the ponds. This week I have also enjoyed meeting many of the dedicated volunteers here at the reserve. It has been a great week to start off the job and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.
