A Busy Tuesday

Tuesday, August 19th 2014

Volunteers had a busy day here on the reserve; this morning we were again working on the heathland weeding out invasive Silver Birch, and willow. Good progress has been made so far on the three work days spent here, although we will have to spend a little more time on this to see the job through to completion.

Each year a local farmer donates waste chaff from his combine harvester to the reserve. This chaff is rich in wildflower seeds and is used in some of our bird feeders throughout the year. Late this morning nine one-tonne sacks were delivered and volunteers relish the task of bagging this into smaller sacks for use here! This is a dusty and dirty job so we were very pleased to have completed it before the end of the day!

Thank you everyone for your help today!
