Volunteer dam building

Wednesday, April 21st 2010

Volunteer day began with some dam building, an all time favourite!

Dam building

The dams that create header pools to supply some of our ponds were built up again. A bit of digging out was also necessary and soon the pipes were flowing well. Our attention then turned to some trees that needed to be transplanted as they were in the same place as a proposed hide. Afternoon tasks included repairing boardwalks and bridges across the site, more litter picking along the beck and giving some of the waymarker posts a new coat of paint.

Volunteer working

Work also began on improving the path on sections of the moorland trail, much to the amusement of Hector and his friends, see below!
