Valued Support

Friday, September 20th 2019

The Natural History Group from Stokesley U3A visited the reserve on Thursday and were very lucky with the weather; clear skies and sunshine all day long! The members enjoyed a guided walk to Plover's Pool, Spigot Mere and the lake in the morning and then after lunch they explored the remaining habitats at their leisure.

The Red Oak tree outside the field centre was looking spectacular against the blue sky.

Although this tree is not native to the UK and is not as valuable to British wildlife as English and Sessile Oaks, its catkins do provide pollen for bees and other insects in spring, and its acorns are eaten by birds and small mammals. The leaves have only just turned this colour during the last couple of weeks.

Volunteers were hard at work pruning along the access road and around the car parking areas. Regular blog readers will be aware that the team don't do things by halves!

Progress along the road was slow due to the huge amount of cuttings! 

 

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the reserve this week whether you are a visitor, Friend of Foxglove, Bird Box Adoptee, 100 Club Member or Volunteer, your contribution is valued.
