Coming Along Nicely

Monday, March 16th 2015

Recently we put up some bird feeders just outside the wetland gate to improve the views from the hide. The feeding station was constructed and put in place by some of our dedicated volunteers.

Well it has taken a little time for the birds to find them but we are now happy to report that they are now being used by a variety of birds including Nuthatch, Blackbirds and Chaffinch (as pictured below).

We have also been keeping an eye on the willow spiling that was completed recently and are glad to report that it is still standing following a recent period of snow melt and heavy rain.

Even more excitingly some of the willow withies have started to bud. This is a great sign that the willow is living and will hopefully be setting root and stabilising our bank for years to come.

Thank you to everyone who helped on these projects your hard work is really starting to pay dividends.
