Wetland and more snow

Wednesday, January 6th 2010

After another day of slight thawing and then freezing again the icicles on the field centre are getting to be very spectacular.


4 of our volunteers managed to turn up today. Andrew and Raymond cleared the paths at the front of the centre and then wheelbarrowed more feed around for the birds.

Anne came in and helped check the wetland and the cattle. The boys and Bobbie have plenty to eat courtesy of Tom and Gillian.

The wetland looked wonderful. All the ponds are not only frozen over, but are covered with snow as well.

A Lapwing and Snipe were seen whilst we were up there.

With more snow forecast this week our access road looks like being accessible to 4 wheel drive vehicles only at the moment. Visitors are parking on the parade ground and walking in through the middle of the reserve.
