On Tuesday Laura and I were joined by volunteers for a mixture of tasks with our trustee Colin whom rings birds in the area. To begin with the weather looked threatening so we packed the gazebo which ofcourse garenteed us a beautiful day.
There were three big tasks for the day building board walks which was thoroughly enjoyed and moving them which was enjoyed less. But a great job was done. Mike and I had the not so nice task of putting the chicken wire on the boards but together we made it.
Edmund and Andrew built a cracking stumpery with a little help from Laura, Kathy and Janet. It helps us towards our target of 50 stumperys for the year and fills a gap in the valley. The logs were also covered in many different types of fungi which were beautiful.
The last job was to remove some encroaching Rhododendron which we made a good stab at.
All round an enjoyable day and very productive. Many thanks to all whom attended from Laura, Colin and myself.
