Working in the wet
After Thursday's wet working-party some of the FT volunteers went to see how the National Trust's Riverlands pond-digging project was getting on nearby
Thursday's work party, attended by seven volunteers, was somewhat marred by very wet weather for the first part of the morning. However, this did not deter the magnificent 7 from tidying the Sustead sites and beginning work on the annual management of the roadside nature reserve. While the work party was in full swing, we were visited by two members of the Norfolk CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England), who talked at length to Trevor and to Mark, Aylmerton Field Study Centre's manager, about the work the Trust does, particularly with school children. We've already been short-listed for an award under the Youth Engagement category - so watch this space!
Sadly, we don't have a photograph of the first Otter to be seen in the beck running through the site, soon after our last work-party!
