Summer Maintenance

Sunday, June 18th 2023

Over the past few weeks, volunteers have been busy working on a range of reserve maintenance tasks. With the recent warm weather, the vegetation has grown massively and lots of pruning and strimming has been done around the main footpaths. Dams have also been repaired to create pools of water which will remain even in the very dry conditions. 

Both Lake Hides have been cleaned and the steps painted. This completes the essential maintenance work being carried out on the Tower Hide which is now open again for both volunteers and visitors to enjoy.

In addition to practical work, lots of other volunteering has been carried out including species recording, bird ringing, and helping with education. Visiting schools and pupils from the Personalised Learning College have been enjoying minibeast safaris and pond dipping on the reserve.

Lots of tadpoles have been found!

Thank you everyone for all your hard work!
