Fantastic Festival

Saturday, July 18th 2015

Today was the first day of our Festival of Nature. It has been a fantastic success with over a 150 people coming to the reserve. There has been a great variety of activities and a lot of fun has been had by all.

The day started with a moth identification session first thing this morning. We had three traps out around the reserve and our willing volunteers diligently identified them.

There have been a number of guided walks throughout the day focusing on different elements of the flora and fauna to be found at Foxglove.

Children have been out and about pond dipping, on minibeast safaris and looking for identifiable bones in owl pellets.

The visitors centre has been a buzz with our bee keepers on hand to give everyone a brief introduction to the fascinating life of our bees.

Everyone who has visited has been amazingly well fed and watered with an arrays of cakes, biscuits, sausage sandwiches and burgers by Anne and her fantastic helpers.

There are too many people to thank individually, so thank you all so much for your help and support to make today possible!

Tomorrow is day two of the festival when we will do it all again and then have our summer BBQ. We hope you can come and join us.
