The main task was laying woodchip on the main path through the reserve. The weather was much better than on the previous two Saturdays, though the ground was still quite muddy.
Other tasks included cutting back branches growing over the paths on the edge of the reserve and pulling up goose grass.
We also found quite a number of Himalayan Balsam seedlings in the reed bed area, which we uprooted in the hope of lessening the task later in the Summer.
