More Good News

Wednesday, March 24th 2021

Staff and volunteers are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the reserve is ready for re-opening on the 12th April (If the pathway out of lockdown is successful). A good step forwards is the Covid-19 Industry Standard 'Good To Go' certificate which was awarded to Foxglove Covert LNR today!

This is in recognition that we have followed government and industry Covid-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.

For up to date information please check our response to the covid-19 situation. We are looking forward to welcoming visitors and school groups back. In order to keep everyone safe groups must book in advance and follow the extra procedures that will be in place. School group places will be limited and are booking up fast.

There was more good news up on the wetland where the pools are teeming with Toads and the first toadspawn has started to appear.

Did you know?

Frogspawn is laid in big clumps of jelly, whilst Toads lay long strings of eggs - If you look carefully, you can see some in this photograph. You can easily tell the difference between Toad and Frog tadpoles a few weeks after they hatch because Toad tadpoles are jet black, whereas Frog ones are greenish brown with speckles.
