Clearing the rat runs

Monday, June 4th 2018

Today we've been hard at work clearing back and mowing the interconnected paths that link many of our most important net rides.

This kind of work not only makes it easier for our bird ringers to carry out our part in the CES scheme, but also provides visitors with an interesting path network to enjoy. 

By clearing back encroaching vegetation we also create mini woodland rides with edge habitat that can be utilised by many species of plants and animals. 

Aside from the ongoing maintenance of our path network the team has also been continuing to monitor the on-site nest boxes on the reserve as part of the Nest Record Scheme

The results of both the NR and CES schemes are used to produce trends in breeding performance, which help us to identify species that may be declining.
