Jobs around the reserve

Wednesday, November 18th 2009

Lots of volunteers were here today doing a variety of jobs. In among all the different tasks no photos were taken, so unfortunately you have a pictureless blog!

Although there were showers the weather has been lovely. The blue sky and warm temperature making outdoor work no bother at all today.

Richard pressure-washed the benches from the woodland walk. They are drying off in the workshop prior to being re-oiled to protect them for the winter.

We did more work on the hay meadow in the scrapes. Young Silver Birch were weeded out from this area.

Opposite the Field Centre there were some young Scots Pine which were crowded in by large Willow. The pine have been re-located to the shelter belt where they will be much happier. This area also has more than its fair share of Silver Birch! They have been taken out as part of an ongoing task to open up glades around the reserve.
