Hive of Activity

Thursday, January 19th 2017

It was a hive of activity at Foxglove today – the warmer weather had led to our bees becoming much more active! Outdoors our Thursday volunteer team were also active. Today we seemed to get lots of jobs started - and finished!

Tony and Mike monitored and maintained water levels and talked to the military press about this work on our wetlands, in preparation for their publicity linked to World Wetlands Day (2nd February). In the workshop Keith did maintenance on a mink raft, upgraded bird boxes and repaired a bench:

Some of us started the day deep in an area of conifer regeneration:

We thinned some of the trees to allow the remaining ones space and light to grow strongly. The larger of those we thinned were then stripped to the trunks and put to use making a short new path beside one of our containers. This area had been getting very muddy with winter footfall.

We also did some maintenance on parts of our car park which had become very muddy:

A team effort all round!

Thank you very much to all who helped today!
