CES 10

Monday, August 9th 2010

On Sunday there were twelve bird ringers working to record the birds caught in the mist nets. Of these there were six ladies, which is something of a record for Foxglove!

Bird ringing

In the eighteen years which Foxglove has been involved in the Constant Effort Site scheme run by the BTO this was the second best CES session 10 we have had. There were 312 birds processed during the day. Twenty two species including juvenile Siskins, Bullfinch, Treecreeper and even a Moorhen were amongst the birds caught.

All in all, a very successful day!

A self guided trail around the Red Route (pushchair and wheelchair friendly) to look for natural clues. Help Edward the Elf to find all of the ingredients for his magic potion and learn some fun facts along the way. He needs lots of items including twigs, feathers and autumn leaves.

No need to book as this is a self guided activity, just pick up a clue sheet from the Field Centre (only 50p) and bring your own pencil from home to tick of the items when you see them. If you spot Edward the Elf on your way around then please take his photo and upload it to our Facebook page!
