Spring is in the Air!

Thursday, February 20th 2014

There is a hint of spring in the air with many of the early flowers now in bloom including Primrose and Hazel; Blackbirds and Robins amongst other species are singing across the reserve. Woodpeckers were also heard drumming around the Outdoor Classroom yesterday.  Signs of increased Water Vole activity have also been seen around the Scrapes where a feeding station has been found near to the reed bed.  Water Voles characteristically cut through vegetation at a 45° angle which can seen in this picture if you look carefully.

A small group of volunteers were in to help today.  Work was completed repairing the section of path between the Wetland Hide to the Moorland Trail.

Several sections of boarding here had rotted away causing the path sides to collapse. New posts and board were installed to create a level surface.  As we finished this frog was spotted crossing the repaired pathway.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out today!
