Highway Maintenance

Thursday, October 22nd 2015

The streams here at Foxglove are used by birds as a ‘highway’ to access the reserve (they don’t sign in at the guard room) and safely get from one area to another.  Kingfishers regularly use the stream that joins the bottom of the lake to get to their favourite fishing spots.

It has been a really good year for growing vegetation and this ‘highway’ had started to become overgrown. So the task for today was to start cutting back the overhanging vegetation along the stream.

The volunteers got stuck into the task with their usual gusto and cleared the long section up to the dam before lunch.

We will continue this task over the coming weeks until the whole stream is clear of overhanging vegetation. We would like to thank everyone for their help today you all worked really hard and we made excellent progress with the task.
