Friends and Volunteers

Wednesday, August 19th 2020

As usual, volunteers have been working hard behind the scenes on all different kinds of tasks in order to keep the reserve running smoothly. Thanks to Katie Awdas, editor of Undergrowth (the reserve's newsletter), Friends and volunteers will soon receive an update on the LNR. Some of the regular mid-week volunteers took a break from working in the rain yesterday to carry out the necessary administration.

Others braved the wet conditions and continued installing new waymarker posts on the green route.

The moth recorders caught hundreds of moths last night and spent most of today identifying the many different species. 

Thank you to everyone involved for your support.
