Browns Wood Work Party

The February Conservation work party spent a glorious morning coppicing Hazel at Browns Wood. In total 15 trees were coppiced. This will help add structure to this new woodland. We also created brash and log piles which provide natural nesting sites for a range of birds. This month's conservation heroes are Chris, Paula and Peter. Your efforts have improved the wildlife potential of this woodland.

Hicks Lodge Work Party

The January LROS conservation work party braved cold conditions at Hicks Lodge. Six hardy souls successfully added more pea gravel to the island. This covered parts of the membrane that was starting to show through. We also cleared the area in front of the Sand Martin wall. Finally, a willow and brash barrier was created around the bird hide.

A huge thank you to Chris, Carol, Linda, Simon, and Peter for their magnificent contribution to bird conservation.
