Work in the Drizzle

Thursday, May 26th 2016

We have not had a day which has been wet the whole way through for some time; it was either drizzle or rain. This still did not stop the volunteers attending the reserve to give their time to us. So today was a tidying up day; cutting back various vegetation that was encroaching the paths and the road into the reserve where the rain had made branches droop.


 

Although raining we were able to get a few pics of the reserve as we made our way around doing various checks and jobs.

The Cascade Pools above the Lake

The Duck Platform from the Lake Hide

The Stone Circle, looking as it has been there since neolithic times

There is an up side to this rain, it made this simple Red Clover look stunning

As the days go by the Yellow Rattle flower is emerging in fairly large numbers

We finished up with a spring clean to the exterior of the field centre where we wiped clean various marks, emptied moss filled down pipes and cleaned around web encrusted light fittings to ensure the place looks cared for.


Thank you to the John, Jackie, Steve and Michelle for your help today.
