Festival of Nature, Day Two

Monday, July 20th 2015

A rainy start to the second day of our Festival of Nature meant we were unable to have bird ringing demonstrations but this soon cleared and the rest of the day was very successful with a variety of activities for all. A number of walks and talks took place during the day.  On the butterfly and moth walk people were lucky enough to spot Large Emerald moths.

Our rare fern, Pilwort was found in the wetlands on the fern walk.

Back at the Field Centre, children tried their hand at dry stone walling.

Others dissected owl pellets to see what the owls had been eating.

Our Festival of Nature weekend finally drew to a close with the BBQ and raffle which was attended by over 70 people.

Over 300 visitors came to Foxglove during the weekend and helped us raise over £2000 to help keep Foxglove Covert running.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the weekend, and particularly to those who gave their time and skills to help make this event such a success.
