Book now!

Friday, November 25th 2016

Today was a fairly quiet day for us and it started and remained cold and still.

Colin came and filled the feeders (thank you) in readiness for bird ringing tomorrow. We dug up a few of our spare trees to be moved to their new home as part of a small wood for wildlife on a local farm.

We continued clearance work down by Risedale Beck with help from Ben and Charlie.

We also decided to offer another Festive Crafts session (on 5th December) as the two we had are now fully booked. Book your place now to make a beautiful Christmas wreath to take home!

The ponies are still getting on well by Plover’s Pool and we now have the photographic evidence – they eat gorse! Just what we want them to do!

With the realisation this morning that it’s only a month until Christmas – get your bookings in now for the Foxglove Christmas Party at Wathgill on 14th December for an evening of festive fun!
