Yesterday's heavy rain and snow and today's melting snow have left all of the becks at Foxglove completely full of water. This photo taken by Tim shows how even the smallest of becks running down from the moorland are almost overflowing.

The eco-club meeting was unfortunately cancelled as the forecast had been for heavy snow today. This was a real shame as the weather turned out fine and sunny! The new diary for eco-club will be sent out shortly and it is hoped that the March meeting will take place on the last Saturday of the month as usual.

Several family groups visited Foxglove today and many took advantage of Elizabeth's self guided trail sheets. These are great fun and as you can see some of our younger visitors thoroughly enjoyed themselves earning points from nature spotting. It was so warm that our budding conservationists were wearing tee shirts and shades for some of the time!
