Team Tuesday

Tuesday, May 20th 2014

The Foxglove volunteers were out in force again helping with a variety of tasks around the reserve. First order of the day was completing the fencing on the wildflower meadow to protect the new Yellow Rattle plug plants from livestock when they arrive early next week.

With all the recent rain and warm weather the need to strim along paths to keep them open is almost constant. Ken and Eddie do a fantastic job for us working on these each week.

Volunteers also worked hard in the gardens around the Field Centre, clearing young Silver Birch saplings from outside the kitchen window and giving the lawns a much needed cut.

Work was also done on the rockery in the back garden. Now the majority of the weeds have been removed the plan is to plant this area with nectar rich species such as Heather and Lavender to provide an additional food source for the many insects found on the reserve.

All of these jobs are really important and help to keep the reserve running smoothly; thank you everyone for your help!
