Special Visit

Wednesday, May 30th 2012

Brigadier G K Bibby CBE Commander 15 Brigade enjoyed a guided walk around Foxglove in the sunshine taking in the main habitats and sights. The visit coincided with an interview with Angus Crawford from the BBC who came to discuss the green credentials of the MOD.

Special Visit

Pupils from the Dales School also enjoyed the sunny weather and a group from Richmond Adult Learning Service worked on the hedge outside the Field Centre by weaving cut Willow stems into the Hazel laths. Only 7 moths of 6 different species were in the moth trap this morning. These included Pebble Prominent and Purple Thorn.

A big thank you to everyone who helped to make today such a success.  Despite the BBC’s very modest geographical skills and alterations to the programme the day was a triumph.  The volunteers who helped prepare the site, the staff, and those who assisted on the day did a brilliant job and really deserve a major pat on the back.  The visitors went off with a positive impression and I am personally extremely grateful to you all.  You did a first class job and the reserve was looking very upbeat and welcoming.  The young Dipper sitting on the weir was icing on the cake! Thank you again.
