Working In The Spring Sunshine

Monday, April 26th 2021

A group from the Personnel Recovery Centre in Catterick Garrison gave a helping hand last week; they edged pathway on the woodland walk and removed excess pond weed from around the pond dipping platforms. 

Regular volunteers were also hard at work in the spring sunshine; repairing damage caused by the elusive Water Voles (who managed to tunnel through a wetland bund causing the water to flow in the wrong direction and thereby lowering the levels in some pools and creating a flood along a footpath)!



Down in the centre of the reserve, repairs were also carried out to a leaking bank to help keep the water levels as high as possible in this dry period. As usual, the job was a lot bigger than expected and work is ongoing!

Other tasks carried out included clearing drainage pipes, sweeping boardwalks, painting signs and identifying species. Thank you to everyone involved!
