What a Difference a Day Makes!

Wednesday, April 4th 2012

Some of the scenes that were pictured on yesterday's blog looked very different today. Last night heavy snowfall transformed the reserve once again into a winter wonderland. The paths that were repaired by volunteers were barely visible this morning.

The bonfire from the work party was well and truly out as you can see below!

Winter Scene

Every branch was cloaked with wet snow.

It is too early to tell what effects this cold snap has had on the wildlife but it can't have been good for the frogspawn and toadspawn.

they have also caused significant damage and sadly many trees have been lost to the stormy weather. This has created yet more work across the whole site as several trails are affected. Please take care when you visit whilst we endeavour to clear away the damage.
