More Wetland Work

Thursday, September 10th 2020

It was the turn of the islands in the wetland pools to be strimmed.  Getting onto the islands takes a little ingenuity.  There are no bridges, and no planks of wood long enough to span the water, so ladders are used.  Hayley braved the crossing first.

Followed by Abigail

Ian was tackling the Gorse and Hawthorn shrubs.

By the end of the day the wetland was looking much better, although there is still some strimming to be done.

Bob completed the work on the boardwalk and Hayley carried out a stock check.  As always the varied skills of the Foxglove Volunteers support the reserve in so many ways.  A huge thank you to them all.
