Thistles and Dragonflies

Tuesday, August 23rd 2011

Adam was introduced to the volunteers today and the task was the inevitable 'thistle pulling' on the wetland! Twelve people worked hard all day to remove the spiky invaders!

 

Adam

Everyone spread out across the entire habitat and managed to avoid wet feet.

Thistle pulling

The thistles were carried to a central point in sacks which involved hopping over Adam's dodgy makeshift floating bridge!

Working on the wetland

All around, dragonflies were emerging after their nymph stage and resting in the rushes to dry.

Here is the team at lunch time with almost all of the thistles.

Thank you everyone, another job is crossed off the (ever increasing) list!
