All of our nest boxes have been checked and the old nesting material removed, ready for the new season’s activity. Here you can see an example of what one of our nest boxes contained before it was cleaned.
On Sunday 16 June the group held a “Public Balsam Bash” where members of the public were invited to join us for our monthly workday. Six new volunteers came along and helped with the Himalayan Balsam removal, which made for a very enjoyable morning.
