Storm Damage

Monday, December 9th 2013

While Foxglove missed the worst of the stormy weather last week several trees around the reserve have been damaged or blown over.  This large Ash bough fell from a tree at the side of the lake smashing though the handrails on the boardwalk below.  Five trees were cleared and made safe this morning, with more still to work on later in the week.

The contractors were back on site again today; upgrades to the paths have now been completed and they have started to build the new pond dipping platform in the scrapes.  It is hoped that this will be finished by the end of the day tomorrow.
