With March upon us, we have finished our winter work programme for the year and that means that we have completed around two thirds of our hedge laying along Old Trent Road at the western end of the site. Considering this is a very big hedge to lay, our volunteers have done a brilliant job and the finished article looks fabulous!
We will continue on with the rest of the hedge from October this year.
On site last week were the flock of 150 wigeon, still on the wet field viewable from the viewing platform. This week they were joined by mallard, shoveler, black-headed gull and 70 lapwing. 12 snipe were present at the eastern end of the site and a green woodpecker was calling away on the western boundary.
Beautifully laid hedge!
