This session saw the 12 members who turned out undertake various tasks around the reserves.

Eric and Sam (our Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteer) prepared 9 birdboxes for erection later in the year - this involved attaching mounting battons to the rear and screwing metal nest hole plates to the fronts (to ward off unwanted residents!). The boxes were then treated with a coat of wood preservative

Elsewhere on the reserves, two members undertook the usual litter pick across both reserves, whilst the remainder...

  • cleared several patches of brambles that were encroaching onto path
  • cut down and removed a tree that had fallen onto a path
  • bagged up and removed some flytipped rubbish
  • planted some more wild primrose plugs

    The Friends are always looking for extra pairs of hands to help out or to simply support their work, so...
