The work party this Saturday 16th March will be quite an event. We will have 280 saplings to plant in our new area and we plan to start at 9.30 am if you are able to come a little earlier.
The weather forecast is not very good so please wear suitable clothing and if possible bring your spade.
Please check your email and Facebook before travelling on Saturday as the forecast is not very good and we may have to cancel (hopefully not as we have to get the saplings planted).
There will be a work party this Saturday 2nd March starting at 10.00 am. Please come along and see what we have planned.
The reserve looked lovely today in the sunshine and some of the flowers and bulbs are starting to display some colour and should be lovely in a couple of weeks time.
Thank you to everyone who came last Saturday to the work party. It was a very productive morning.
The Bird Hide was cleaned of all the leaves that had gathered over the last few weeks and even the windows had the once over.
Some of the branches recently taken from some of the trees were used to make a natural fence line along the perimeter of the reserve filling in all the gaps which seem to have opened up.
The webcam was installed but unfortunately nothing was captured this time but it will be sited in another position later this week.
And of course more importantly we had a lovely cuppa and catch up in between.
There will be a work party this Saturday 16th February 2019 commencing at 10.00 am. Due to the previous one being cancelled there should be lots to do. Hope to see you there.
As usual refreshments will be served at 11.00am to keep us going.
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.
Robins are always a popular bird this time of year.
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.
Just to remind you that there will be a work party this Saturday 15th December commencing 10.00 am until 12.00 noon.
It will be a very cold morning so please wrap up warm but we will have hot drinks on hand at 11.00 am to warm us all up.
Just a reminder that there is a work party this Saturday 1st December commencing at 10.00 am.
Please wrap up warm as it could be wet and windy.
I wouldn’t want to try walking across now
The paths are very wet at the moment so good sturdy footwear is a must.
We had a very productive day on Saturday.
Due to a fallen tree there were lots of branches and logs to move, some of which were used to continue the natural fencing along the Pinewood Road side of the reserve. Others were put in a pile creating a natural hiding place for creatures and insects alike to build their homes.
One of the Willow trees which was overhanging the path a little too low had to be cut back opening up the view to the large pond. It took four of the volunteers to move the branch as there was some weight in it.
