Summer Work

Thursday, August 15th 2013

Volunteers have been hard at work over the past few days toiling away on many of the jobs that crop up around the reserve during the summer.  Mike and Tony spent time replacing and repairing some of the nestboxes that have seen better days.

The birds certainly will be pleased with the new roofs and weather proofing that have been installed.

Others have been clearing areas of Bracken from around the lake and along Risedale Beck.  This invasive plant smothers any other ground flora (apart from Stinging Nettles, as the volunteers will no doubt tell you!) so clearing it is vital if we are to maintain a diverse range of wild flowers in these areas.  As well as the work outside Jacky spent her morning pricing all the books for sale in the Field Centre to help avoid confusion when purchasing.  Thank you all for the hard work you have put in this week.

It is time again for the Richmond Coffee Morning one week today.  If anyone could help us by baking a cake or two to sell we would be very grateful - they can be dropped off in the Field Centre next Wednesday or at the Coffee Morning on Thursday.
