A Panoramic View

Sunday, November 25th 2018

It was a slightly damp but mild day on the reserve, and the first job was to check up on the ponies. For the first time they had ventured to the other end of the Moorland, and were there to greet me through the gate, although they soon followed me up to the Stone Circle in the hope of more carrots or apples. 

Today's jobs included burning a big pile of brash from Thursdays' volunteer work party, as well as filling all the bird feeders around the reserve. The Sparrow Hawk made several appearances around the Field Centre, swooping down to try and catch a snack off the feeders. 

The new hand rail in front of the Lake hide has been installed…

...and the first dam on the cascading ponds is taking shape with 15 wooden sleepers for the water to flow over.
