Preparations

Tuesday, December 2nd 2014

Our Tuesday volunteers enjoyed a break from coppicing today, instead clearing Brambles, Willow and Gorse from the bank on the right hand side of the lake. This area is going to be re-profiled over the next few days to create a grassy bank for ducks and other birds to feed on. A ramp will also be dug so the birds can easily walk out from the water.

Everyone soon got stuck in, cutting their way through a dense tangle of vegetation.

It was hard work clearing the cut vegetation from the rough uneven ground, but by lunchtime we had finished and the site was ready for work to commence tomorrow.

Thank you everyone for your hard work today. We will keep you updated as this project progresses through the week.

My sister sent me this link - I believe we found a cluster of large willow aphids!
