Work Experience in the Sunshine

Monday, October 28th 2019

Ella Wheeler is currently studying Level 3 Animal Management at Askham Bryan College and is carrying out her week's work experience at Foxglove.  She visited Lark and Taurus, who are looking well in their new field.  (You can see that they are growing their 'fluffy' winter coats!)  During her time at Foxglove she will be helping with the habitat management tasks.  Welcome to the team.

Although cold, the sun has brought out some insect life.  A Red Admiral, rather battered looking, was sunbathing on the Bramble leaves.

Common Darters were also on the wing.  At this time of year when invertebrate species are recorded on the observation board we add the date.  This information is then entered into our species data base.  Butterfly dates are forwarded to the VC65 county recorder.
