Our dedicated team of volunteers turned out as usual this morning to help with tasks around the reserve. Clearing and burning brash after the storms last week was first on the agenda.
The tree nursery also needed moving from the 'skid pan' in readiness for this area to be ploughed and sown with a winter bird seed mix. This is an exciting project and will hopefully draw many birds into the reserve over the winter months (and maybe even some new species!)
The ground was much easier to dig in the new location and soon all the remaining trees were heeled into trenches, keeping them safe for planting at a later date.
John Andrews also spotted this Woodcock from a path, and with his long lens captured this brilliant image of an elusive species.
