Conservation Work Report – 16th November

Volunteers cutting gorse

Thursday morning was cool, bright and dry – ideal conditions for our tasks. Most of the session was spent cutting the gorse in the sandpit where it was encroaching on the heather.

Later, we moved to behind the Paws for Thought bench, where we tackled the shoots of False Acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia) that had regrown since our previous session. It is an invasive, thorny tree native to North America and difficult to eradicate, but we shall prevail eventually through persistent treatment.

Thank you to Cheshire Wildlife Trust and our wonderful volunteers for their essential assistance in conserving the nature reserve. The work is vital during the current biodiversity crisis.
