Not a thistle in sight

Thursday, August 7th 2014

Yesterday the volunteers continued the hard work up at the wetland pulling the remaining thistles and then removing them from the wetland.


This week we have also cut back the grass around the front of the wetland ponds and I think you’ll agree that the wetland is starting to look pretty good! So a big thank you everyone who has pitched in over the last few days.


Yesterday we had the first of our August Antics sessions. We had twelve children pond dipping at the scrapes to see what they could find. Three types of Water Snail were identified plus lots of Sticklebacks and Whirligig Beetles, Stone Fly larva, May Fly larva, Water Boatmen and a variety of other creatures were discovered in the deeps, and a good time was had by all. Next week’s August Antic activity is Artful Animals, an arts and crafts event exploring the lives of animals. There are still places available, please see the events and news section of the website for further details of how to book places. We hope to see you there!
