From Sun to Rain

Friday, August 19th 2016

Yesterday was pretty much dominated by ringing of the birds - see the previous Blog entry. However behind the scenes the volunteers continued with the important tasks of keeping the reserve flowing, in more ways than one!  As always the varied jobs are allocated and the team gets on without complaint, and plenty of banter.

The lack of water at the Bullet Catcher Pond had the team fixing a dam and rodding the inflow pipe.

Mean-while the steps on the Lake Hide had to be repaired, John as always getting down to the job.

John also returned today to finish a few jobs he started yesterday. We now have a new shelf in the tool shed, as well as cleared paths from all the strimming debris.

This picture below of the Speckled Wood Butterfly was taken from below before the rain began to fall this afternoon.

Thank you to all the volunteers for their continued help.
