More Snow and Ice

Saturday, February 13th 2021

Over the last few days the temperature at Foxglove has barely risen above freezing and at night time has dipped as low as -7.

Heavy snow is showing no sign of melting yet!

Trees are still cloaked in white.

Although for now, the reserve remains closed to volunteers and visitors, staff have been continuing to coppice and pollard the Willow in the centre of the reserve. 

There have been some lovely days working under blue skies with powder snow under foot when we felt lucky to be working outdoors.

Other times were not so much fun in bitterly cold, wintery blizzards!

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, visitors will be welcomed back to enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife.

To all of our supporters, keep warm and stay safe!
