Finishing Touches

Tuesday, July 16th 2019

Volunteers have finished planting a new reed bed along the banks of Spigot Mere. This will provide shelter for the wildlife from the prevailing winds.

Some of the plants have been in for a few weeks now and are growing well. 

Last week a flock of twenty five Lapwing and over thirteen Oystercatchers were observed on the mere. Black Headed Gulls have also been enjoying this new habitat. The Spigot Mere appeal is ongoing as it is hoped to build a new tower hide and some screening to prevent any disturbance to the birds by visitors.

Today, Team Tuesday have been hard at work, pruning along the access road, strimming, repairing footpaths, painting benches, mowing lawns and pulling thistles.
