What an 'orrid day!  Admittedly the rain is most welcome from a reserve point of view but it makes visitor operations somewhat uncomfortable at times! Pat led the Friday walk and I do not think anyone drowned today but they all came back happy haveing seen a cracking male Wheatear out on the Ouzel Fields. Meanwhile my all weather volunteer gardening duo of Margaret and Jim Dalgano had managed to get in over 60 plants in the new beds out the front of the centre. Lots of loveley scented Thyme, Roses and Hebes to attract the insects. They got a bit damp...

Thanks guys... we could not do it without you!
