February Worky Day

Sunday, February 12th 2012

Despite the icy, cold conditions 33 volunteers turned out for the Winter Worky Day.  This is a record turn out for the February event!

With the paths covered in ice the sledges once again came in handy.

Willow and Hazel were coppiced along the beck to create a glade. 

Look! A Tree!

Some of the larger stems and trees were felled by chainsaw.

Watch out Meg!

Everyone worked really hard and enjoyed the day.

Richard captured the scene of everyone beavering away through a tunnel of smoke.

By the end of the day the fires had burnt down and it was clear to see how much had been achieved.  The work that has been carried out along the beck and in other areas of the reserve has created ideal habitat for Redstart.  Hopefully these will soon return here to breed.

Thank you everyone for the tremendous effort today.  We look forward to seeing the fruits of our labour in the Spring.
