Our volunteers erected the new feeding station at the wetland today. To stop squirrels jumping across to the feeders, a baffle made from an old metal drum was added.

Once the baffle had been attached the post was lifted into position and set level. We hope that this will attract a wider variety of birds to the wetland area for visitors to watch and enjoy.

The rest of the day was spent planting Larch trees in the woodland area alongside the lake. Several trees here have been lost to storms over the past two years, leaving many large open areas through this section of woodland. Replanting these will help to create a diverse age structure in the woodland which will be beneficial to a wide range of wildlife.

As always, thank you to everyone who has helped out on the reserve today.
