A sunny, chilly work day
Well the sun was shining, but it didn't ever really shift the frost. Despite that we all got stuck in - working to keep warm I suspect!
Welcome to new volunteer Martin who soon got busy with filling the bird feeders at the cabins and at the viewing area. Some work also got done down there to tidy up the logs and feeders.
We did a big clean up around the cabin, inside and out, which all makes it a welcoming place for Sunday visitors and weekday volunteers alike.
David and his team were occupied with their usual assortment of drills, hammers, wheelbarrows etc on "major works" to improve our storage and organisation.
A litter picking walk was also a good chance to see five Hooper swans fly over the reserve and to spot the giveaway signs of a sparrowhawk kill on the wildflower meadow.
Finally, the wildlife is now moving in....
More volunteers are always welcome - when are you coming down?
