Abbey Fishponds, 7th November 2015

We were back at Abbey Fishponds nature reserve on Saturday for the second occasion in the past month.

Once again we joined with Marjorie White and her local volunteers.  Tasks included clearing path boundaries from overgrown vegetation, sweeping up a high volume of fallen leaves and of course a litter pick.  There was also some cutting back of trees to attend to. 

Around fifteen of us were present, including a new member, Michelle.

Unlike most of our sessions this year and over the past few years in fact, we experienced heavy rain. Although we had turned out in waterproof attire, the inclement conditions presented a challenge! Nevertheless, we persisted until the close of play and achieved what we set out to do.  Let us hope for more pleasant conditions next week.
