More Moor Green

What beautiful weather for exploring the Blackwater Valley Path! Ranger Stuart, Student Josh, Volunteer Chris and I saw lots of people taking advantage of the good weather yesterday, as we worked on the section near Moor Green Lakes. We were tidying up overhanging branches, chipping as we worked our way down the path. A team effort in getting the chipper working again after an incident with a trapped log accounts for Josh’s elated expression in the photo!

After a brief lunch break looking for wildfowl (a mysterious hybrid goose foxed us!), we prepared for next Tuesday’s volunteer task.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
