|The pile at the start - I'm in the green jumper by the fire|
A lot of other work has gone on over the reserve to make sure the best environments for the wildlife are kept that way. That had left a big pile of 'brash' on part of the reserve where all the stuff that had been cut down was collected. Our job on Sunday was to go through the huge pile and make sure there wasn't anything living in it and then have a bonfire!
|And at the end just a little pile in the |
pond left for the shrike to come back to - we hope!
It was nice working and chatting to everyone and watching the wildlife get one with its day around us. At one point around 300 geese (greylags probably - I was watching my feet and trying not to step in rabbit holes!) came onto the far side of the lake, pretty awesome!
|Water levels on the reserve are really high!|
I'm looking forward to going back for more volunteering but my next trip there I hope is for a ringing session so more on that soon I hope.
Hope you enjoyed,
