Adam

Saturday, August 1st 2015

Adam has spent four years at Foxglove.  He is now taking a different path into teaching and we all wish him well.  Over the time Adam has worked at Foxglove he has been involved in all the activities, from moth mornings to flower walks, school visits and guided walks, to name but a few.

One of his first jobs was clearing the heath of invasive species.

He joined the ringing team and made a valuable contribution to their work, gaining his C license.

Ringing takes place at sites away from Foxglove and after only a few days at work he headed off for his first visit to Cape Wrath.  Several more followed.

Winter Worky Days saw many volunteers arrive ready to carry out habitat management.  The work done has benefited the flora and fauna.

A Bio-Blitz weekend in 2013 was followed by the Festival of Nature in 2015, both of which were organised by Adam and were a great success. 

This blog gives a very small insight into the tremendous work Adam has been involved in whilst he has been at Foxglove.  We greatly appreciate all of his effort and work and wish him well as he moves into his new career.

Many thanks and best wishes from everyone at Foxglove.
