Tuesday Volunteer Day

Tuesday, February 10th 2015

Over twenty volunteers continued working hard in the coppice block today. Large patches of old growth Gorse and Silver Birch at the edge of the block were targeted opening up views through the adjacent conifer trees.

The ground around the fire quickly softened as we worked to clear the cut brash; wellies were essential.

By mid-afternoon we had finished for the day and stood by the fire to enjoy the warmth and the new view that has been opened up.

Work also started preparing a field for the replanting of a bird seed crop. This area will provide a food source for birds over the summer and autumn months hopefully attracting in other species such as Corn Bunting and Yellowhammers. Once the ground has dried out, the farmer will return to harrow the soil before sowing the seed.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out on the reserve today.
