Spoilt for Choice

Thursday, July 14th 2016

As I sit down to write the blog I seem to have huge numbers of photographs to choose from - I am spoilt for choice! Here are a few of them, showing some of the nice things that have happened at Foxglove in the last couple of days.

Yesterday, as we went home from our “Fascinating Flowers” evening event, we were privileged enough to get some lovely pictures of this family of Roe Deer, along the entrance track near the gate.

Today some the volunteers have been working out on the wetland.

There were lots of damselflies seen, including this lovely blue one (species unknown).

And also this Emerald one.

Around the Field Centre some pruning and clearing was done and the potholes in the road were filled.

Inside the Field Centre, the seemingly never ending job of weighing out seed was done.

Off site, it is Barn Owl ringing time of year. Here is one of the youngsters from earlier in the week.

We have got a lot done today. Thanks to everyone for their help.
