Rabbits, Eggs and Redpoll!

Sunday, April 7th 2019

The Foxglove Easter trail is now in place; try to spot ten rabbits and ten eggs as you follow the trail. Trail sheets are available from the field centre and the clues will be in place for the next three weeks.

The clues were placed out this afternoon by one of our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers.

He also helped by weighing out bird seed for the shop.

His help with these and many other tasks today is much appreciated! Yesterday, members of the Swaledale Ringing team caught over fifty Redpoll including two Common Redpoll (Carduellis flammea), these are noticeably larger and paler than Redpoll (Carduellis cabaret). The photograph below is of a Common Redpoll.
