What a difference a few days make

June 8, 2024

Just a few days on from the flooding at our Watermeadow Reserve, and the waters have receded and the beautiful wildflower meadow is resplendent in all its finery.


Amongst the flowers you will spot Luna; one of the residents at Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue who manage our two most northerly nature reserves for us.


Many thanks to Emma and the team up there for keeping us updated on this event; we have travelled up to the reserves today to take a huge collection of items to resell in their charity shops; the proceeds of which all go to help the wild birds and wild animals which they admit at their site. You will recall it is now some 14 years since we relocated our hospitals from Rochdale to Wigton, and over that period so many more thousands of lives have been able to be saved.
