Photo Caption Needed!

Thursday, March 2nd 2017

What a day! Our Thursday volunteer team were in and we got loads done! Our Tuesday and Thursday volunteer teams provide invaluable help with practical tasks around the reserve. Today tasks included continuing the tidy up after our recent tree work.

(We managed to get this levitating log action shot! Witty caption anyone?!)

Sean and Simon, our contractors, continued to help us with their chipper. We caught them on camera here taking a well-earned break!

Some logs were left in the woodland to provide homes for our wildlife, and some were moved for later use – with a couple of us cycling to get us quickly to the right place for loading and unloading the trailer!

Mike, Stephen and Carl filled the hoppers. Christine got the portacabin cleaned ready for the work day this Saturday (if you’re planning to come please book here), smartened up our activity room and tidied up around the Field Centre.

Traditionally, on Thursdays we also tackle some of the more technical tasks and today we made good use of just some of the skills within the volunteer team:

John made improvements to the camera cabling;

Keith helped make signs, repair bird boxes and make up bird box kits;

Mike and Tony monitored water levels across the reserve and a team considered and started work on improving drainage near the Field Centre.

Thank you very much to everyone who helped today.

In other news, preparations are starting outside the reserve for work on our new access gate…

…we’ll keep you updated as the work progresses.
