What a load of Chaff

Friday, August 31st 2018

Today was a mixed bag as always, with the majority of our time spent sorting through newly delivered chaff, which is used to feed birds from the hoppers that are dotted around the Reserve.

Aside from chaff sorting we have been busy re-edging and preparing paths for relaying, as well as continuing to GIS map the many different elements that make up the Reserve.

Colin has been in as per usual and has filled up the bird feeders ready for Bird Ringing on Sunday (2nd), which will be the final instalment of the BTO Constant Effort Scheme for 2018. Colin has also been enjoying re-edging the front lawn as is evident from the picture below.
