We enjoyed a great turnout of local volunteers on a warm sunny day. Our main task was to eradicate birch, gorse and bramble in the heather areas. This proved to be a relatively easy job because there was little to be found.
Based on our experience, we may drop the May session from the schedule. It seems there is little that needs doing at this time of year.
Instead, we would do the scrub clearing during our September session.
After lunch, we checked our nest boxes and were pleased to count fifteen in active use – ten by Great Tits, four by Blue Tits and one by Nuthatches.
The latter was particularly pleasing as it is the first observation of Nuthatches using our boxes.
Thank you to our fantastic volunteers for your time and to Cheshire Wildlife Trust for running the day.
