January Weekend Work Day

Sunday, January 6th 2013

An amazing 44 volunteers turned out this morning to lend a hand with some of the winter habitat management work.

The team set off to work along Risedale Beck, coppicing dense, overgrown Hazel and Alder.

Ringers, friends, regular volunteers and a couple of new faces all teamed up together to clear a woodland glade, which will burst with flowers in the Spring.

Many families joined in too.

From up on the bank the site was a hive of activity.

After lunch, the younger conservationists ticked off one of their '50 things to do before you're 10', rebuilding one of the dams along the beck.

Soon the water level was up and the feeder pipe filling the pond once again.

As the began to fade, the group reflected with justifiable satisfaction on a hard days work.

Thank you to all those who helped and gave of their time so soon after a busy Christmas and New Year.
