Continued Clear Up and More!

Tuesday, February 28th 2017

A large part of today was spent tidying up after tree work and the continuation of this year’s coppice block done by our contractors, both around the Field Centre and over towards the wetland. However, today our volunteer team had reinforcements in the form of Sean and Simon, who had been doing the tree work - and their chipper!

Our other contractor on site recently, Willie, was also working hard today – here helping backfill the stretch of willow spiling built by our volunteer team last Tuesday.

Elsewhere the keen volunteer team were tackling tasks across the reserve: bagging bird food for sale and tidying up around the Field Centre;

Preparing and putting up signs along our border with the ranges on the moor and the wetland;

Preparing and putting up signs about some of the ongoing management;

And some path maintenance and repair on the way to the wetland…

Thank you very much to all who helped today – so much was achieved and it would not have been possible without you.

In other (exciting) news: Bird boxes are not just used for nesting – although some are starting to get inspected, we think, with this in mind. Birds also like somewhere safe and dry to roost for the night and tonight our camera nest box was selected for roosting in by this blue tit! 😊

We had to turn the Field Centre lights out to get a good picture of the screen.
