Upcoming Events

Friday, September 28th 2018

I thought it best to let you all know about upcoming events here at Foxglove, with the most pressing being next Wednesday's (3rd) 'Owl Pellet Discovery for Adults'. 

An owl pellet is the regurgitated indigestible parts of an owl's diet, such as fur and bone. By analysing these regurgitated pellets we are able to find out quite a bit about an owl's lifestyle.

Since most of the prey's bones are not actually broken during the attack and the subsequent digestion process, they can be readily identified in the pellet. Most pellets include a skull or skulls, which makes identification of the prey relatively simple.

As if this wasn't enough we also have the first 'Winter Worky Day' of the 2018/19 season on Saturday 6th October! Practical work is likely to centre about clearing and tidying up in the woodland, or removing reed mace from the Wetland Ponds. 

Here is our updated What's On list for the coming months…

If you are interested in attending any of these events please let the Reserve Managers know via the website or by calling 01748 830045 or 07754 270980.
