BEES Urban Nature Reserve
Our last pond work of the year, and a good job too as the quite a few of the waders seem to be leaking, or just wet (sorry Amy!). Despite the conditions (wet feet, rain, pond) both ponds had a good clearance with the focus being ono the bogbean which forms a dense root mass which can be hard to remove.
Tesco say they will come and collect the trolley that was in the pond. And we hope the ‘beavers’ don’t return to put all the logs back in the pond.
All the paths, meadow and parts of the railway cutting were cut and raked.
In the winter we will be thinning some of the trees to let more light into the ponds and woodland floor.
