Summer Tasks

Tuesday, July 27th 2021

Winter work usually involves most volunteers working together on a single task.  Summer jobs are so varied that volunteers are often spread across the reserve. 

It is important to ensure that the bird feeding station can be viewed from the easy access hide.  This means that the reeds, which have grown exceptionally well, must be cut, raked and removed.

The trailer was filled several times before the area was cleared of the cut reeds.

Bob used his expertise to make a repair on a bridge.

Emma did a great job cleaning the veranda and assisting Gerry in cleaning all the light fittings. (I bet some of the spiders weren't too happy!)  We are starting to get ready for our QAVS presentation.

Ian also checked the mowers before the net rides were strimmed or mowed.

As always a big thank you to our valued volunteers for using their variety of skills to enhance Foxglove.
