Finishing Off

Tuesday, March 17th 2015

Volunteers have had a busy day finishing off some of the jobs that have been started over the past couple of weeks.

The net ride maintenance along the ‘Dog Leg’ was finished this morning, with the willow being pollarded at a height of six foot. Cutting at this height keeps the vegetation at optimum height for bird ringing.

Ken and Eddie continued strimming on the wetland. Cutting of the vegetation will be completed over the next week so the area is ready for the breeding season.

During the afternoon we spent time clearing invasive Silver Birch from a clearing in a section of conifer woodland. Removing these trees will allow more light to reach the ground encouraging natural regeneration as well as promoting the development of a more diverse ground flora.

Volunteers were also hard at work in the Field Centre spring cleaning and completing the monthly stock check. Thank you to everyone who has helped us with these jobs today.
