A great time was had by all as SSDC rangers including two apprentice rangers and two local volunteers (Bernard and Katie) spent the day removing excess vegetation from the 4 ponds. This was done to improve the habitat for all wildlife, but will particularly favour Britain's most threatened newt species which has done extremely well on the reserve this year. Damaged weirs were repaired and we can expect the water levels to rise significantly in the lower two ponds as well as the marshy ground that feeds them. As a reward for everyone's efforts, the rangers did a great BBQ for everyone who enjoyed tucking in to bacon and egg doorstep sandwiches. Scrummy!

Well done to all! Sorry we couldn't join you in the end. Still catching up after a spell in Glasgow.
