Volunteers work hard

Wednesday, May 19th 2010

Today the volunteers worked hard in the glorious sunshine. The stock fence between the wetland and the middle moor field was finished, and is now ready to accept some Jacob sheep which we will borrow from our friendly farmer Keith.

There are more flowers coming out every day. Joining the throng are Ladies mantle, Crosswort, Red Campion, Herb Robert and Thyme-leaved Speedwell.

Dandelion clock

Elizabeth took these photos. The Dandelions are already going to seed, hence this lovely 'clock' and the Bluebells are covering the banks with a blue haze.


There have been lots of butterflies fluttering and mating in the sun.

Trevor has started work on site to install a screen along the boardwalk to the wetland hide. This will ensure that people walking along the boardwalk will not disturb wildlife on the ponds. Pictures tomorrow!
