More Images from Foxglove 25

Saturday, July 22nd 2017

It was damp last Saturday but we were very lucky that it did not do this!

Rain!

The puddles soon appeared and the rain drops kept falling.  I hasten to add that these photos were taken from the protection of the Field Centre.

More Rain!

During the week we have received people's photos of Foxglove 25.  Thank you very much for bringing them in.  These ones were taken by Colin.

The pond dipping team.  Sticklebacks, beetle larvae, damsel and dragonfly larvae were caught.

The Exmoor Pony was very well behaved and many people stopped to admire him.

Roger and Rosie took people on a bug hunt.  They all had to receive instructions about sweep netting and using a pooter.

We are all going on a bug hunt!

Looking at the bugs from the heath.  Was it really that big?

Volunteers at the end of the day - they had worked hard - thank you.
