Getting Loads Done

Tuesday, May 30th 2017

Another Tuesday and another day where we get loads done with the help of our wonderful volunteer team – thank you all! We continued preserving and painting marker posts,

cleaned out the tadpole tank, maintained loppers, repaired grip on boardwalk, tided the workshop (these things always seem to look worse mid-job than either before or after!),

made repairs to the access track and strimmed, mowed and trimmed back vegetation overhanging some of the paths (the warm weather and recent rain has really made everything grow!). We weeded paths,

filled bird feeders (here John and John are just getting seed out ready),

trimmed the Field Centre hedge

and cleared moss from the downpipes and drains, washed from the roof by the rain…

….a find here included this rather handsome ground beetle.

Two of our mink rafts were repaired – including a little fishing for a lost component…

The repair process also turned up one of the exciting sightings of the day: A dipper fishing down at Risedale Beck – lovely!
