Paths, Pipes and Posts

Friday, September 6th 2019

This week, volunteers have continued to carry out all kinds of summer maintenance tasks. Yesterday another section of the Easy Access trail was improved with a topping of fine dust on the surface. This part is just opposite the Field Centre at the start of the red route.

The result is a very inviting pathway!

As this didn't take long, the team then turned their attention to the wetland once again where more cuttings were removed.


Due to the fantastic growing season many of the pipes and dams were completely overgrown, these were dug out and re-discovered and then marked out with posts (yellow posts to mark a pipe and red to indicate a dam), this will make future maintenance work more easy.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers who have helped with various tasks this week from practical conservation jobs, species monitoring and fundraising to the updating of social media, your time and effort is greatly appreciated!
