The main tasks for this weekend’s work party will be cutting back the brambles encroaching onto the margins of the Middle Pond as well as raking up hedge cuttings and other cut and dead vegetation around the site. We also need to have an unseasonal bonfire as quite a lot of woody material has accumulated in the fire-pit. As usual there should be time to study the wildlife, there are still a number of butterflies and dragonflies about at this time of year.
To help at the work party, meet at the reserve on Saturday, 23rd September at 9:30 am. We will finish around lunchtime. All members are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. Please wear appropriate work clothes, stout shoes, boots or wellies, and gardening gloves or equivalent. Most tools are available on-site but bring along anything you think might help such as a sturdy rake or a pair of loppers.
