Tidy and Make Good

Thursday, February 2nd 2017

It was a mild, dull, drizzle laden day on the reserve, made a lot brighter with the humour and banter with our Thursday volunteers. We were able to get through a fair bit of work, even though a lot of it was tidying up loose ends and trying to clean up areas where our activity had created mud.

Mike and Tony did the usual checks on the wetland, and the checking of the various water courses and dams.
Jenny assisted Tony with the repairs in the Scrapes.

Christine and Mike coppiced some Hazel to make 18” pegs to re-enforce the path edging , as well as clearing mud and soil from around the coppice block paths.

Stephen, one of our regular helpers over the past year, had his last day with us today. We wish him all the best, and a big thank you from all of us at FGC. 


Keith repaired more owl boxes, and Andrew assisted where he could. Thank you to all that came today.
