What a Difference a Day Makes!

Wednesday, April 4th 2012

Some of the scenes that were pictured on yesterday's blog looked very different today. Last night heavy snowfall transformed the reserve once again into a winter wonderland. The paths that were repaired by volunteers were barely visible this morning.

The bonfire from the work party was well and truly out as you can see below!

It is too early to tell what effects this cold snap has had on the wildlife but it can't have been good for the frogspawn and toadspawn.
