Richmond Town Hall Coffee Morning

Thursday, June 14th 2018

We had a great turn out for today's Coffee Morning at Richmond Town Hall, managing to raise over £200 for the Reserve! Thanks yet again to everyone that helped out and everybody that came to support Foxglove.

After returning to the Reserve in the afternoon there was enough time to move the ponies from the Wetland and back onto Plover's Pool.

Lark and Taurus continue to carry out an important job on the Reserve as part of our grazing regime that is geared towards meeting our conservation objectives for the various habitats of Foxglove.

Well managed low-intervention grazing schemes are able to meet the welfare needs of the livestock whilst also allowing natural processes through grazing to reinvigorate sward structure, thus improving grasslands and pond edge ecosystems for invertebrates, small mammals and birds.

Talking of reinvigorated sward structure…

Our Wild Flower Meadow is really starting to take off! Even on a blustery day like today I was able to spot four different Bumblebee species during a quick walk back to the Field Centre from seeing Lark and Taurus.
