February workday

Sunday, February 21st 2010

Our February workday took place in beautiful sunshine today. We were all centred on the woodland walk clearing up brash after the winter. The heavy snows had brought a lot of dead wood down from the tops of the larch and the whole area needed some TLC.

Everyone worked really hard and made a huge difference to the general appearance of the woodland floor. Wood Sorrel and Herb Robert could just be seen poking their delicate stems through the layers of pine needles.

Dot got some healthy exercise walking to and fro to the fire. It was nice to meet new people and for the different volunteers (bird ringers and Tuesday volunteers) to be working together.

It has been a busy week for us all and unfortunately the blog has been slightly neglected.

Tune in tomorrow to see a round-up of what has been happening on your favorite nature reserve over the past few days!!
