Men at Work!

Saturday, March 16th 2013

Staff from J W Bainbridge have now completed the work on the bridges around the easy access route. This trail is now fully open again.

The new bridges are already blending into the surroundings.

Final adjustments were made to the pond dipping platforms by staff from Playscheme Ltd in preparation for the busy summer school term.

Colin's new peanut feeder was installed close to the lake and along with the other bird feeders was filled up to provide the best chance of seeing wild birds from the hides over the coming weekend.

Students from local schools helped to clear one of the proposed orchard areas too. All of this work both paid and voluntary is hugely appreciated.

The back garden is still teeming with Chaffinch, Brambling, Blackbird, Lesser Redpoll and Siskin to name but a few. Frogs were back in the ponds during the sunny spells making up for lost time over the recent wintery days!
