Autumn Colours

Saturday, October 27th 2018

Over the last week the colours at Foxglove have noticeably changed.  Along the Sycamore Avenue the fallen leaves have turned the path golden yellow.

The Sycamore Avenue

Larch shows soft green colours in spring and are now just turning to yellow, as they are the only deciduous conifer.  The needles will soon fall and the path towards the moor will become covered in a thick layer of them.

On the south side of Risedale Beck the Larch are a little slower to change colour.

The Coffee Morning is on Thursday the 8th of November in Richmond Town Hall, between 9 and 12.  As usual there will be a cake stall, tombola and raffle.  Please drop in for a cup of tea or coffee or if you would like to help then contact the Reserve Managers.

November 3rd is our Worky Day.  If you are joining us then please let the Reserve Mangers know by Wednesday, as we need to know numbers to order the hot meal.  Layers of old clothes will be needed!

Magnificent Migration

We'll be listening out for the first Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers and learning about their amazing journeys. Come and learn all about bird migration, and discover the world of bird ringing (weather permitting). Booking is essential as places are limited.

Suggested donation of £3 per person. 
 



Spring Flower Walk

Wednesday 15th May 2019 | 10:00 - 12:00

Our Spring Flower Walk will take in almost the whole reserve as we find out about and identify every plant which is in flower, from the humble Daisy to the more exotic Orchid. Come with a notepad to log the number of species, come with a camera to take some wonderful photos, or just come along as you are for a beautiful, enjoyable, informative walk as part of the Flowers of the dales Festival.
This is a popular event and places are limited therefore booking is essential.
