Lights. Camera. Action. Water Vole!

Thursday, June 16th 2016

Today started with yet another sighting of our lovely Water Voles! Jade, our work experience student from Askham Bryan College, got rather a nice video – do have a look at it on our Facebook page!

A lovely group came to visit us from the Mother’s Union. Roger gave them a talk about the reserve and many were surprised by how much goes on! A walk followed where they got a chance to see some of the habitats on the reserve and visit our lake hide and back at the field centre, our bees proved popular as always.

Elsewhere around the reserve our volunteers helped with a variety of jobs. They put out new water vole feeding platforms, checked the water levels in our new pond and helped repair the poles used for our mist netting. Thank you to all who helped!

Also, check out our events page - we posted new events today!
