Work Update

Friday, February 10th 2012

We have been working hard in an area next to the scrapes, clearing Silver Birch trees.  Braving the rain today with our new volunteer Hilde, we have now finished felling the larger of these.  We hope before spring is on us, that we can work through the adjacent willow carr to remove Silver Birch saplings and scrub.  This will open up the area allowing light to reach the ground and will give more depth to the scrapes come summer.

Frozen Lake in Winter Sun

Yesterday, Anne, Ruth and Elizabeth were off on their monthly flower walk. The reserve was looking great in the winter sun and despite the snow, ice and general freezing conditions they found Gorse, Hazel, Shepherd's Purse, Germander Speedwell and Bittercress all in flower.  It might not feel like it today but soon Coltsfoot and Primrose will be out ushering in the other spring flowers.
