Aysgarth Primary School visit

Tuesday, June 23rd 2009

We had a hot day at Foxglove for the Aysgarth Primary School visit. They brought 9 children to do some mini-beast hunting. After a walk along the beck where they found spiders, soldier beetles, ground beetles and broken eggs we hunted the log pile opposite the Field Centre. A big frog was resting in the shade. The children all had a good time .

Clive and Bethany came to volunteer today. Clive strimmed around the woodland walk after checking the cattle. Bethany helped out with the school group.

A Ringlet butterfly was seen for the first time this year and Blue-tailed Damselflies were flying through the scrapes.

2 Common Lizards were seen sunning themselves on the wet meadows boardwalk.
