Cutting Back

Thursday, August 20th 2015

Today our volunteers have been out on the reserve doing a variety of tasks to keep Foxglove looking tidy. We started the day mowing the bird ringing net rides, ready for CES bird ringing on Saturday. We then cleared overhanging vegetation that could get caught in the nets. Some of the net rides haven’t been used for a while and the one in the reed bed took quite a lot of time and work.

Afterwards we cleared grass and small shrubs from around the base of a number of small Juniper bushes near the lake. Juniper is very slow growing, and tends to get overshadowed by all the other vegetation that grows faster or higher than it does.

Thanks to everyone who came to help out today- it is always very much appreciated.
