Stones and Saplings

Tuesday, May 19th 2015

The wildfowl feeding platform and boardwalk is making good progress and will soon be complete.

To help the vegetation on the feeding area regrow; we are going to seed it with grass and wildflowers. The ground is quite rough so before this could be done the volunteers set to work removing all the stones from the area below the platform and levelling out the ground.  It is hoped that it is now flat enough that we will be able to mow it once the vegetation grows.  Three trailer loads of stone were removed which made a great difference.

Once all the stones had been removed, the volunteers then continued their hard work, removing birch and willow saplings that have been slowly encroaching on the reedbed and scrape areas.

Thanks very much to our volunteers for all the hard work carried out today.
