Another busy day of volunteering on the reserve. The morning started with clearing the car park of leaves and unblocking various drains and culverts along the trail. The afternoon was spent coppicing an area above the public footbridge. This is an area where we hope to encourage willow warblers and bullfinches and the dense regrowth from the cut trees will provide ideal habitat for them. As we were working we saw dippers on the river, bullfinches in the trees and a green woodpecker was calling in the distance.
