A Festival and Feedback

Thursday, June 1st 2017

It amazes me how diverse this job can be; one minute I am organising volunteers with their various jobs, the next I am giving a talk on the reserve, followed by using the wac-a-plate to re-vamp the paths.

 We held two walks and talks for the Swaledale Festival; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It was well attended and folk appeared to enjoy themselves.

Being Thursday we were blessed by having our volunteers in, this varied from guiding walks to clearing paths,

and re-vamping the marker posts.

A few jobs we will be repeating in the coming weeks, as they are jobs that will take a few weeks to complete! Thank you to all who helped out today.

In other news: A few months ago we ran a Build a Nest Box event. This was well attended and folk went away with their completed boxes to hopefully put up in the early spring ready for the nesting period.

It is rare that we hear back from folk, so we were especially delighted to receive this message yesterday:-

"Hi my son asked me to share his news we have had great tits nesting for a few weeks in the bird box which he made at Foxglove a few months ago. Today we witnessed a fledging tit and we now have an empty box. I want to thank you for putting such a wonderful event on as this has allowed my son to be completely engaged with the wildlife in and around our garden."

It is comments like this which make a really great end to our day!
