Aconites - Snakemoor Jan 2018
Ditch waterfall Jan 2018

Robyn Thorogood, the volunteer manager of Snakemoor nature reserve reports on the latest work party, conducted at the end of January.

A work party was convened on Saturday 27th January 2018, but it proved to be a rather annoying visit to our local nature reserve.

There was quite a lot of mucky rubbish to be cleaned up — this included a full doggy-poo bag, a pair of underpants near the entrance, a syringe, a cigarette lighter, sweet papers and more.

There was also the limb of a tree and much ivy dumped at the entrance — that will be a morning's work for two volunteers to clear away. Although this dumping was not household rubbish in the traditional sense, it's still a form of fly tipping and is totally unacceptable.

Some good news to report, though.

The aconites planted several years ago are looking stronger (just off South-East corner of the meadow). However, those we planted last year are still not showing — perhaps next year.

The ditch waterfall doing well — see photo.

The next work party will be on Saturday 24th February, starting at 9.30am — new helpers would be very welcome!
