Rain Then Shine

Tuesday, April 5th 2016

It was raining on arriva today and I half expected the volunteers not to turn up; however they are a solid bunch working in all conditions.
Again the jobs were scattered around the reserve, some of us raked out and removed some of the gravel path spoil that was dumped by the contractors a couple of weeks ago. It was a labour intensive job, not at all inspiring in the rain, but the feeling of getting the job out the way drove folk on. At times a muddy wet job!


While that was happening Ken and Eddie cleared the old downed hawthorn on the moorland, and Brian and Vince set the mini beast pit fall traps by the outdoor classroom.


In the afternoon sun the board walks of the Scrape were cleared of the moss and leaves gathering on the decking.

Anne, Ron and John went in search of the illusive Common Toad spawn, much to my delight finding some for the Field Centre classroom, ideal timing with the Children’s Holiday Event tomorrow.
