Work Party - 06 Oct 2019
We all met at the pumping station on the canal side of the reserve and began work on the lake edge just north of Kingfisher Hide. Our job was to clear the ground so that sunlight could reach the lake edge ground to encourage, among other things, small bird life. This meant felling sapling, sycamores and alders and pollarding some hawthorns. We stripped the saplings to make poles for possible use at a later date by us or the Trust and stacked them by the pumping station.

Having read the report we did of FoSL’s 659 volunteer hours spent on the reserve in 2018, Cllr Paula Hiscocks decided to come and see us for herself and at the same time to familiarise herself with the district’s premier nature reserve.
