Snow Fun Anymore!

Saturday, March 23rd 2013

In the lull between the snow volunteers were able to continue with tree planting yesterday.

Tree planting

Although a tedious task it is a rewarding one and in a few years time this patch of woodland will be a valuable resource for the reserve providing both food and a habitat for the wildlife.

Planting Trees

Today however, the weather took a turn for the worse and even the contractors admitted defeat and had to call it a day!

The frogs had started to breed during the sunny days at the start of the month. Most of their frogspawn has now perished due to frost and this poor frog was seen this morning making its way to a pond. Fingers crossed for some better weather soon.

Poor Frog!

On a lighter note, the back garden is still full of birds who were waiting for the feeders to be filled this morning.  Brambling are still here fattening up before heading back to their breeding grounds and are a real delight to watch feeding alongside the Chaffinch, Siskin and Lesser Redpoll.
