A Good Days Work

Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Simon was busy again above the lake working on the new terraced pools.  Today the dams between the lower three pools were constructed using sleepers.

These were sunk into the side of the banks and are also supported by fence posts.

Volunteers helped to place stones along some of the interconnecting streams; this will help to support the dams as well as providing an area for birds such as Grey Wagtails and Dippers to feed.

As Simon was tidying up the pools began to fill - the dams were holding!

Volunteers were also working close by, clearing out an area of invasive Gorse.

In other news, Snipe have been heard drumming on the Wetland. Hutch, one of our regular visitors snapped this photo of one sitting on the fence.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out on the reserve today, not only with the habitat maintenance work but also taking photos and working away inside the Field Centre.
