Snowdrop Sunday 16th February. Storm Dennis was the second major storm in a week to hit our area. We hoped the weather would change and be kind to us for our Snowdrop Sunday. Sunshine was forecast for the afternoon but, at first, the skies showed no sign of clearing. Then came the hailstones! Then came the sunshine!
The water level had risen in Seldom Pond, the oak tree island was underwater
The boardwalk had submerged and had to be cordoned off to visitors
Some water had spread into the woodland
The snowdrops were out giving a good display
We had snowdrop plants for sale as well as our delicious apple juice
Our visitors came prepared for changeable weather
we did get some spells of sunshine
which our visitors enjoyed
The cafe was really busy during the afternoon with two volunteers serving and one in the kitchen washing up! Another manned the sales trolley and braved the hailstones – well done Arron.
Thank you to all our visitors for making the day such a success.
Camera trap delights. We have been putting out some camera traps in various woodland locations to see if we can capture some of the wildlife on the Reserve. We have not been disappointed. Here is a small selection of some of the clips:
A curious pheasant
Our Roe deer
Just having a yawn!
