Weekend Volunteer Day

Saturday, March 19th 2011

At last sunny weather for a winter workday!! 16 volunteers worked in the new plantation clearing and tidying. This new area contains Scots Pine, larch and spruce and will be an ideal habitat for all kinds of birds from Long Eared Owls, Tawny Owls and Buzzards to Goldcrests.  Several bird boxes have already been put up in this patch and are available for adoption.  It won't be long before, hopefully, they are occupied.

Volunteers on March Worky Day 20111

Here are the group of volunteers having a well earned cup of tea.  Thank you to everybody who came today, a great deal of work was carried out which has already made a huge improvement.

Below you can see the sunset through the conifer plantation and the moon rise over the reserve!

 It has been a long day and there will be an early start tomorrow as the bird ringers will be at Foxglove for first light!
