The work party for this Saturday 2nd February 2019 has been CANCELLED.
Take a look at some of the pictures I took late this afternoon at the reserve. The trees were stunning laden with snow and the Mallards had a clear channel in the large pond swimming around the frozen parts.
The reserve had a beautiful but different look with the snow.
There was a Bird Survey on Saturday and we had a good turn out of both volunteers and birds spotted. The following were seen in a 1 hour period and total numbers are at any one time.
Blue tit – 3, Chaffinch – 3, Crow – 1, Dunnock – 1, Great tit – 1, Jackdaw – 2, House sparrow – 1, Long tailed tit – 7, Magpie – 1, Mallard – 3, Moorhen – 2, Robin – 2, Wood pigeon – 1 and Wren – 1.
A wood mouse was also observed near the hide.
Instead of a work party this Saturday 19th January we will be holding a Bird Survey from 10.00 am until 11.00 am. Tea and coffee will be served afterwards to keep us warm.
