Friends at work and flora & fauna
A good number of us again on 27th July. Some collected Yellow Rattle seeds from The Paddock...
...some of us removed old wire fencing from the path to Admaston Bridge...
Can you see Australia yet? Russell & Jon.
Others did some path clearing - before ...
...including dealing with a dangerous tree...
20th July - stayed in the jungle for relative cool, and plucked Himalayan Balsam. Here's some of the beast!
The end of another session - great progress on the HB!
On Saturday 10th July we had a session on Himalayan Balsam, with the help of the 2nd Wellington Scouts...
Some tackled Himalayan Balsam - here's Zoe getting stuck in...
As you can see, it can grow very tall! More Scouts did some litter-picking. Great work, everyone, thank you.
A very hot 13th July! Friends tended the oak nursery ...
...and began extending the area for more saplings.
Another team cleared the paths south and west of Tee Lake.
On 29th June we did some path clearing by Dothill Bridge ...
...come back Stu, all is forgiven!...
...the end result...
...more Friends weeded the oak nursery... (the one with the scarf didn't do much!) ...
... and Simon & Jon dealt with some wire fencing in Beanhill Wood.
On 22nd June we continued painting the woodwork at the Shawbirch entrance...
...another team cleared the path to Downing Bridge...
...that's better! After that we all moved on to Himalayan Balsam control at Beanhill.
Nice light on Tee Lake this evening...
... here they come!
The meadows are a riot of colour at this time of year.
Fox 'n cubs
The rather magnificent monk's hood.
A lovely Southern marsh orchid, thank you Anna Parkinson.
On 15th June one group cut back the overhanging vegetation from the path to the south of Tee Lake...
...another team finished the painting at the Donnerville Spinney entrance ...
...a 4th group cleared some wire from the path by Admaston Bridge and a 5th did some dock control and an orchid count.
The buttercups are looking particularly good this year.
On 8th June we installed a new bench at the top of Tee Lake...
...Dotty & family, the first folk to use it!
Some more 'Friends' began tackling the Himalayan Balsam in Beanhill Wood. Here are Glenys & Ron...
...and Ian plucking one from Beanhill Brook. Great job everyone.
On 1st June one team cleared the self-sets by the Tee Lake main path ...
...and we were joined by Jozef, who is volunteering for his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. Here he is working hard at litter-picking.
On 25th May we cleared the entrance off Shawbirch Road, and the painting team got to work again!
Jon and Russell collecting stone ...
... to help manage the flooding of this path. Good work everyone.
One of the tasks for this week was weeding the oak saplings and laying down bark chips - 18th May.
One team painted the woodwork at the Morville Drive entrance to the Reserve.
We installed some new signs - this one is on the wetland area by Shawbirch Bridge.
