Summer

Monday, August 17th 2015

Despite having a fairly cool summer, with not many hot and sunny days, today dawned bright and pleasant. One of our regular visitors brought in a few photographs that he had taken in recent weeks.  Butterfly numbers have been quite low due to cool temperatures this summer but he was lucky enough to find a Large Skipper and a Dark Green Fritillary.

On a sunny day, Foxglove is a delightful place to visit with a wide range of habitats. Visitors can find themselves wandering along a leafy green path by a stream one minute, then the next, out on a purple Heather covered heath or watching the Mallards swim peacefully on the lake.  The reserve is a mass of colour with wildflowers along the pathways and in our wildflower meadow.

If you haven't yet visited Foxglove, the next sunny summer's day is the perfect time to come!
