Smiles All Round

Thursday, November 24th 2016

It was a fairly mild day on the reserve, what I would call perfect working weather. This was a good thing, especially as we had our Thursday volunteers in today, and we wanted to break the back of work on the Wetland, which involved strimming and cutting back some of the dense, choking plant matter surrounding the ponds.

With the carting away of various plant matter which we were clearing we were kept warm, and in great humour.


In the afternoon we got a few more outstanding jobs done. The picture below is making the most of the dry weather to get the ‘milk crate’ hide , which looks out onto the Wetland, stained and preserved for another year.

Folk cleaned items we had used, such as Mike on the trailer which was thick with mud

and tidied around the Field Centre, like Christine sweeping out front, but generally folk just got on around the reserve clearing drainage pipes, oiling benches.

 At times the jobs we do may not seem important, but it is all part of keeping Foxglove Covert LNR running to the high standard that is expected. Thank fully we have a dedicated bunch of Friends that help us to maintain those standards, again thank you !
