Sunday Volunteers - October 2016

Great day with the rest of the vols working around Riverside Pond today. It's that time of year again when we are "slashing and burning" so a big bonfire is a must! We cleared a good section of path and tidied up after the "so called" fishermen who frequent the area. Their main aim seem to be to drink as much as possible and throw all of their litter into the undergrowth around them, oh yeah and cast a line in the water while they are there! If that's not bad enough there was a lot of discarded fishing line as well.

Earlier in the morning I did a quick walk around Fingers with DK and we had the first Redwings of the winter when four flew over and dropped into the Rough. We also had a couple of Siskins over along with a handful of Meadow Pipits. On Saturday morning we had ~40 Meadow Pipits over the park and another 60 on 100 Acre.
