Pictures from the North

Monday, June 27th 2016

Today was very quiet at Foxglove and we were able to make some progress with office work. We also spring cleaned the hides as the spiders had managed to catch vast quantities of Willow seeds in their webs, making them look like something from a Halloween display! With a bit of sweeping and cleaning they were soon looking better.

Our fellow Cape Wrath friends have been busy. The weather has been calm enough to allow them to get out to the cliffs for some seabird ringing. As you can see, they have had some sunshine.

Here is a young Razorbill.

They have also sent us pictures of a Magpie Moth, some Marsh Marigolds and some Tufted Duck ducklings.

As we haven’t heard much from them, like us, you will have to make up your own story to go with the pictures!

Back at Foxglove, the Water voles have been posing for the camera and giving our visitors some good views. Here are some of the nicer ones.

The Water Voles are now very easy to see, so do pop along and look for them if you have a spare moment.
