Wednesday 24th November 11am to 1pm
I want this to be a sort of mini-workday, just a bit of tidying and burning off the rest of the brash that was left ftom the last workday on Monday. Maybe take a few more trees down but nothing too heavy. Meet at the Victorian bridge picnic clearing. Also look at what needs to be done on the other side of the bridge and start to put a plan together.
Remember to bring something to eat and drink. A packed lunch would be good.
Sunday 28th November 10:30am to 1:30pm
Meet at the picnic clearing again. Come along for the full shift, or just part of the shift if you have other things to do.
We have aquired a litter-picker from the litter-pick in Cawston Wood (www.cawstonwood.wordpress.com) a few weeks ago so one of us can clear the bit of litter that has appeared. We also have two bird nesting boxes and a bat box very kindly donated by C J Wildlife Ltd that we can put up. I am also getting some bird nesting boxes from the Youth Offending Service so we need to think about where we put them, bearing in mind they need to be cleaned out once a year.
Other work that can be done: start to clear the area on the south side of the bridge, rake up all the bits on the ground, burn off any brash that we take out, finish the steps that lead up to Cawston Bridleway and, make another log pile.
Christmas will be on us soon and I am very aware that everyone will have a lot to do in December. I will do my best to keep the momentum going but understand that we all have a limited amount of time to give.
Fantastic progress made this year so far, loads learnt and loads more to learn, plenty going on with the link into Cawston Wood, Sustrans connecting the greenway with Route 41 at Potford’s Dam, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Warwickshire Butterfly Conservation taking a keen interest in what we are doing. It’s all good!
