Team Tuesday

Tuesday, February 3rd 2015

Nineteen volunteers spent their day helping us to continue work from the last Winter Worky Day - clearing along an overgrown beck near to the lake.

Small areas of Gorse were also cleared along the path and we are hoping wildflowers will be seen in bloom here during the spring and summer.

Much of the wood we cut today was burned but where we could we used it to rebuild the dead hedge that runs along the path and created some habitat piles which will be enjoyed by a variety of animals.

The group worked hard and were rewarded with some delicious scones that Ann had baked earlier this morning. The weather was fantastic; almost spring-like with the warming sun on our faces as we worked.

The work was completed during the afternoon and has really made a difference to this area of the reserve. Thank you to our volunteers for your hard work today.
