Volunteers at Work

Thursday, April 11th 2019

As has been said many times before volunteers at Foxglove have a wide range of skills.   Yesterday's volunteers were guiding walks, bird ringing and identifying moths whilst today, building new mink rafts and then in the sunshine, repairing bridge rails and improving access to one of the water inlets responsible for keeping some of the ponds flowing were all on the list of tasks.

Checking the bridge

Water does not always go where we want it to go, but a pipe should aleviate the situation and send the spring water into the beck.

Sorting out the spring

Hard core was then placed on the bridge to complete the task.

A job well done

A great team effort.  Thank you for all your hard work today.
