Willows, Winners and Wildlife Houses!

Sunday, November 8th 2020

The benefits of recent woodland work are clear to see with so much more light beaming through the plantation at the top of the green route. A beautiful old willow was uncovered in the middle of the conifers and has been left untouched as a feature. It looks a lot like the 'Whomping Willow' from Harry Potter! 

From willows to winners and congratulations go to Mrs Lowther who is the winner of this quarter's 100 club draw. A cheque for £25 is on its way! The Foxglove Covert 100 Club is open to anyone aged over 18 and costs just £11 per year. 

Finally, thank you to Bob who has been extremely productive at home and made a fantastic selection of wildlife homes to sell in aid of the reserve and a special display stand for them too. From bird boxes for Blue Tits, Great Tits, House Martins and Swallows to bat boxes and refuges for Toads and Hedgehogs there is something for all of the creatures that frequent a back garden.

Christmas Elf Trail

Saturday 5th December 2020 | During opening times

A self guided trail around the Red Route (pushchair and wheelchair friendly) to look for natural clues. Help Edward the Elf to find all of the ingredients for his magic potion and learn some fun facts along the way. He needs lots of items including twigs, feathers and autumn leaves.


No need to book as this is a self guided activity, just pick up a clue sheet from the Field Centre (only 50p) and bring your own pencil from home to tick of the items when you see them. If you spot Edward the Elf on your way around then please take his photo and upload it to our Facebook page!
