Success!

Wednesday, June 3rd 2015

Volunteers, this morning, led a guided walk looking at the early summer flowers found on the reserve. Sixty three different species were recorded on the walk including Northern Marsh Orchid. Orchids grow alongside many of the pathways that wind their way through the different habitats at Foxglove. It is good to see them back again in their usual spots.

Most exciting to see was Yellow Rattle in flower in our wildflower meadow on the middle moor. This species was planted last year to help suppress the growth of coarse grasses allowing for a more diverse ground flora to develop. It is a real success story for the reserve to see that this has taken so well.

Thanks to everyone for leading the walk and identifying the many different species of flower.
