Otter and Mink

Thursday, July 9th 2009

Taxidermy otter and minkThere is a new addition to the classroom at Foxglove. The Mink (on the right) has been prepared by local taxidermist Brian Lancaster.

You can see that the Otter (on the left) is much larger and has blunter features and webbed feet. We hope that this will make it easier for visitors to differentiate between the two species. (Photo by Elizabeth).

48 different species of moth were trapped last night. These included Small Rivulet, Brimstone, Double Square Spot and Bright Line Brown Eye.

Three pupils from Colburn School tried out Elizabeth's new Alphabet walk. This is available from the Field Centre (free of charge).
