It was a lovely, warm sunny day on Sunday when 24 Moor Green Lakes Group volunteers turned out to work on the reserve, including several new faces.
The main task was to clear the reeds from in front of Grove Lake hide. Also to clear in front of a nearby viewing slot and, time permitting, to clear some of the ever expanding crop of Silver Birch & Willow. This work provides expansive views of the lake, essential for viewing the winter visitors as well as the many resident birds.
Sadly, a vast array of cans, bottles and other rubbish had been posted through the viewing slot. Please take your rubbish home, broken glass is not good for wildlife or volunteers!
Tea and homemade biscuits were enjoyed by all and everyone went home tired but satisfied a job had been well done.
If you fancy joining us next time the October Sunday work party meets on the 14th when clearing Tern Island is one of the tasks.
Come and try it, you may like it!
