Feeder Frenzy!

Tuesday, October 30th 2012

Sixteen volunteers came to help us with several tasks at Foxglove today.  Birch and willow were cut back along part of the access track to improve visibility driving up into the reserve.  The Leyburn branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association will be here on Saturday to start building the feature wall and seats out side the Field Centre.  Volunteers cut back overhanging willow and dug a foundation trench so that they are able to start construction this weekend.

Cleaning the feeders is required every 5-6 months and is a favourite job of our volunteers.  All the seed feeders were collected from net rides and taken to the portacabin where they were taken apart and thoroughly scrubbed before being put back together…with only two screws spare at the end!

They are now drying before being put back out later in the week.  Thank you to everyone who has lent a hand helping us here today!
