The weekly update from the cress beds: a pair of egrets, captured by the trailcam, feeding on the scrape
Of course the heron is still there too
And the fox is there at night. Evidenced by a pair of pricked up ears!

This week the heron was patrolling the scrape again. It's often there, foraging for frogs
But the most videos we had were of the foxes, like this one of a single animal, and the one below, of two foxes.These animals look extremely healthy, but a dead fox was recently found in the cress beds.

For all the details and some lovely photos, head over to Ben's blog HERE.
It is important to note that Gadespring Cress Beds is still being developed & due to health & safety will only be available for access, other than to wildlife monitors & work parties, at organised events & at times when there is a weekend volunteer warden on duty. General public access is a possibility for the future & this could only happen once the wildlife hide is relocated after planning permission. Keep an eye on this website & blog, as well as the Box Moor Trust website, for details of open days & organised public events when you can visit & explore Gadespring.
