Another Productive Day

Thursday, January 8th 2015

Today the volunteers split into two groups to complete very different tasks. The first “technical” group spent the day building a new frame to hang bird feeders on. They did a fantastic job creating the frame which is now lovingly referred to as the “gallows”. It is going to be erected near the wetland to give a greater variety of bird sightings from the hide.

The second group braved the blustery winds and occasional shower up by the wetland hide to do one of the volunteers all-time favourite jobs of Gorse removal. They worked hard in difficult conditions and made a fantastic job of clearing the area around the wetland hide where the new feeders will sit. We also did the preparatory ground works for the placement of the new bird feeder.

Unfortunately we didn’t manage to source the much needed drum to keep the squirrels off the feeders until late this afternoon but the team are looking forward to completing the task and erecting the new feeders next week.

It was a very productive day and all the hard work is really appreciated so thank you very much.
