Summer Work

Tuesday, July 30th 2013

Over twenty volunteers were here at Foxglove today helping with practical tasks across the reserve.  The group split as there were several little jobs to do, John, Jude and a couple of others spent much of the day clearing Bracken and Gorse from a glade close to the Field Centre.  Bracken is controlled in these areas as it has the ability to smother these sensitive wildflower habitats.

Other jobs that were completed included cutting the overhanging reedbed to once again allow access along the red route, strimming along pathways, cutting back brambles along pathways, checking and weeding out tree tubes as well as cutting back overhanging branches on the access road.

Thank you to everyone for your hard work - it is amazing the amount of work we managed to get done!
