Blue skies…

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

It's been a lovely day today and our Tuesday volunteer team has again got lots of jobs around the reserve done.

One team spent the morning digging a new ditch on the Moorland to prevent water from flooding the path during rainy spells.

This is how it looks now it has been dug.

Colin came in and has done a fantastic job edging the paths around the centre.

Brian and the two John's did a great job burning through the last of the cut reed. John also went out on his weekly butterfly walk and this week he counted 12 Orange Tips, 4 Peacocks, 16 Green - veined Whites and 6 Speckled Woods.

Jenny and Ann worked on the wormery. After cleaning it out they have refilled it with layers of earth and sand, collected from along the beck, we should now be able to see the worms moving the earth around when school groups are visiting.

Ken and Eddie have done a brilliant job cutting back with the strimmers once again.

Thank you to everyone for your help today, it's been a pleasure working with you all.
