All in a Days Work

Tuesday, September 3rd 2013

The move to the new conservation store off site was completed this morning by Team Tuesday who helped to load and unload the trailer with Foxglove equipment. This has been a huge task and has only been made possible by the many hours put in by volunteers.

Back at the reserve, volunteers were also hard at work re-building a dam that feeds an important wildlife pond. Stones and clay were piled up to create a header pool to feed an inflow pipe.

The completed dam was a success and the water level in the pond will soon be restored to its usual height.

After lunch, the reeds that were pulled out last week up on the wetland were removed.

Some of the younger members worked so hard that they will be going back to school for a rest later in the week!

This work has made a great difference to the ponds and the benefits will be clear in the spring.

Our thanks go to all 26 volunteers who made today's tasks possible.
