Yesterday the volunteers headed out to Long Island at Moor Green Lakes. It was a ‘kitchen sink’ task, as we had to pack lots of kit including the boat, so we could set up the pontoon as our temporary wobbly bridge. The gang set to work clearing the scrub to open up the island for over-wintering wildfowl, focusing on the western end by the hide and viewing screen. There was a cracking fire (plenty to cook my steak on), using cut saplings and brash left over from contractors who had cleared larger trees on the island. Andrew befriended a sociable / hungry goat at tea break, giving a rather silly photo. A big thank you to all the 22 hard working volunteers, including three from local company AdMore.
