Grass of Parnassus

Thursday, August 26th 2010

Volunteers are working hard all of the time for Foxglove (not just on Tuesdays)! Here are Tony and Mike who give lots of their time to help out with all kinds of jobs from stock taking to dam building!

Volunteers Tony & Mike

Today after slashing bracken on the Bluebell bank in the woodland, they filled the large bird feeders (hoppers) and sorted out wood from the old boardwalk so that it may be recycled. Clive filled all of the seed and peanut feeders once again and volunteers from the Youth Justice Service also helped to de-nail the planks of boardwalk. This help is really appreciated and the reserve wouldn't be the same without it.

Grass of Parnassus is out in flower again on the raised fen.
