Full Strength

Tuesday, May 31st 2016

For the first time in three months we are full strength and have a full compliment of Reserve Managers. Our new Senior Reserve Manager Jennifer introduced herself to our volunteers who as always welcomed her to the reserve.

The weather, although breezy, held off any rain for us to get a few jobs off the list. The big job was to finish the outdoor classroom path which involved physical hard labour.

Jennifer attached herself to various teams; the positioning of motion sensor cameras on Risedale Beck, as well as assisting the team filling bird feeders, and Stacey with the bird box checks and ringing.

While the bulk of the volunteers were doing the path, Ken and Eddie were busy strimming the path sides and generally keeping the reserve looking cared for.

Thank you to the whole team today for their hard labours.
