Walks and Work

Thursday, August 6th 2015

Yesterday members of Colburn and District Gardening Club visited Foxglove for an evening guided walk of the reserve. They were treated to good sightings of Roe Deer, both on the reserve and out on the training area.

Today visitors from the Defence Dental Service visited on a team day out, also for a guided walk. The deer were nowhere to be seen, but as it was a nice sunny day, there were good numbers of Dragonflies and Butterflies. A while was spent in the hides watching the Moorhens and Mallards on the lake. Sadly, despite fifteen pairs of keen eyes keeping a lookout, the Kingfisher was nowhere to be seen.

Meanwhile, our Thursday team of hard working volunteers spent the morning trimming back vegetation from the bird ringing net rides, and then had an afternoon in the workshop fixing some of the tools and giving it a much needed spring clean.

Thanks to everyone who helped out today.
