Waterworks!

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

The team have been getting their feet wet today as we've been tidying up around the ponds and streams. We have cut back all the overhanging branches along one of the little streams running into the lake. This will improve the river as a flyway for smaller birds.

As is often the case throughout the winter months a bonfire was used to burn all the brash, todays took a little while to get going however!

There was a visible difference by the end of the day.

A smaller team headed off to tidy up following last week's wet and windy weather. First stop was to clear a Larch tree along the green route which had come down in the strong winds. Once that was done they moved on to repair the dam which had been partially washed away.

Before...

Eddie began work controlling the rushes on the wetland by strimming them ready for the breeding season and Ken cleared out some of the thick weed from the pond opposite the Field Centre to create some areas of open water.

Thank you everyone for your hard work today and to Anne for the delicious cake!
