Counting down ...

Friday, July 1st 2011

The usual summer jobs on the reserve are being carried out along with work to prepare for the Open Day which is fast approaching.  The work is varied!  Below Kyle is measuring the trailer and quad to see if we can fit them into a small space elsewhere on the day.

We then moved onto a badly overgrown path to clear away the weeds and fill in the rabbit scrapes.

Repair of path

Although Kyle is the only one in the photos today, David, Josh and Beryl were working hard too.  Thank you very much.

Whilst on the topic of the Open Day could we ask that if you have any prizes for the Tombola that they be brought to the Field Centre.  If you could support us by baking some cakes, scones or biscuits could you please contact the reserve.  Any help is really appreciated. Thank you.

And finally - early this morning a weasel, at full speed, carrying possibly a field vole, ran along the paving stones in the garden.  A few minutes later he was back seaching in the longer grass and then over to the wall and around the pond.  It was quite difficult to keep track of him! The only photo taken shows the grass around the pond and not even a brownish splodge that could be mistaken for the weasel!
