Outwitted Again!

Monday, October 5th 2020

Several attempts have been made at 'squirrel proofing' the bird feeding stations at the lake edges. However, it seems that one particular Grey Squirrel is always one step ahead and Andrew Gillings managed to capture it in mid-air as it appeared to 'fly away' from the feeders!

This area is one of the main attractions for visitors and behind the scenes a lot of work is put in to keep it looking at its best. Newly appointed Intern from Teesside University, Olivia and work placement student from Askham Bryan, Sam, spent this afternoon strimming the duck feeding platform. 

It was their first day with the Foxglove team and we hope that they both enjoy their placements at the reserve.
