BNR

Dec 17th. 9.00 -11.00

 

Open to anyone, come along and work on the appetite for Christmas Dinner!

Working Party Tasks

 

Spread chippings on paths.

Beside the lake on North side especially towards Court Farm Lane.
Path along East Side
Area around the old hide
Path from gap to steps - this is to level off the roots in the path surface and to absorb the mud

Look at the fence along Court Farm Lane and decide on how to proceed with tightening it.

 

Equipment needed:- wheel barrows, shovels, rakes. We do have some of the latter at the reserve but only 1 wheel barrow.

We will hopefully finish a little early, then coffee on me at the Silk Mill Café.

 

Tina Warden and Trustee

 

Just a small sample of the work carried out last Saturday at the Working Party.

BugHotelTina bought along some more items to construct a second bug hotel (close to the path on the north side of the lake).  Yo and Tom spent the session creating the hotel.

 

 

 

 

 

In the meantime, Mark and Margaret thinned out some of the unwanted saplings on the primrose bank. The spoil from this was used by Tina, Andy, Marion and Jon to re-build some of the barriers which have collapsed over the past few years. 

Barrier(north)Three barriers were repaired. One next to the seat on the north side of the lake to stop people and animals from falling in the lake.

Barrier(west)One at the bottom of the steps on the Court Farm entrance to discourage people from walking along the south side of the lake, where the geese use the small areas of grass for grazing.

Barrier(south)And finally one near the public footpath exit into the orchard to prevent people from walking along the top of the steep bank on the south side of the lake.  

 

progress_1John Clifford, who was not only instrumental in the acquisition of the Nature Reserve for the village, but spent much of his spare time managing the Reserve. His love of nature and skills as a woodworker have transformed the Reserve into what it is today. It was therefore only fitting that the trustees decided to remember him by commissioning a special seat to be installed in the Reserve overlooking the lake. It has been designed and created by a local craftsman utilising a huge beech tree stump donated by The Dumbleton Estate. 

Although not yet finished, the trustees and friends of the Reserve were treated to a preview of the work so far. We were all very pleased with the result, especially John's wife Madelene who said it was 'very John'.

The seat has been decorated with various natural images such as leaves and an acorn. The rear of the seat, which is circular in shape has been carved with the twelve sectors of a clock - another of John's loves. We all can't wait for it to be finished and installed in the Reserve - it will certainly be a popular feature of the Reserve.

IMG_0218IMG_0216Tina managed to collect enough material to construct one larger sized bug hotel to replace one of the smaller ones already in the reserve.

 

 

 

 

IMG_0213

IMG_0209Three adults and two children took a whole day to build the new hotel last Friday. We started by digging a recess in the northern bank to make sure the new hotel would be roughly level. Then each of the 4 floors were built up and then stuffed with various bug friendly items. Wooden stakes were used to secure the hotel to the ground to prevent movement over time.

 

To make sure the hotel would be dry and cosy for the residents a section of the old hide roof was placed on top. Finally, to prevent the local deer population from dismantling the hotel, which happened to one of the old hotels, the whole structure was covered in chicken wire.

 

The new hotel is clearly visible from the northern footpath and we are now waiting for the first residents to arrive. In fact, some of the garden refuse used in the construction already had some live snails attached, so they will have a head start!

bug-hotel-rousham-stowe-600x450This summer we plan to rebuild the “bug hotels”. Our current hotels, which were built a few years ago during one of Beckford Open Garden weekends, have seen better days and now need a re-vamp. If you are not sure what a 'Bug Hotel' is, just have a good look at the picture to the right. Basically, it's a pile of old rubbish fashioned into suitable habitat for a variety of insects. It is not difficult to build (see instructions below), so if you have any of the items listed below, or would like to get involved in the re-build program let Tina know via email (pebrown@hotmail.com) or leave a message at Beckford shop and she will come and collect...

  • Clay/pottery type of drain pipes (even if broken)
  • Old bricks with holes in them
  • Local stone

Thanks

Tina Brown Trustee and Warden (pebrown@hotmail.com) - I have pallets, straw, and wood (with and without holes!)

MarI have now updated the photo gallery. It now looks different!Click on the title above to see.

TreePruneCartoonIMG_1132_2Despite the very cold wind this morning a few people turned up (6 of us) to complete some of the tasks on Tina's list (see below).

Some of the steps on the north bank needed some new supports for the log steps, also some of the logs had rotted away and needed replacing.

 

IMG_1128_1The woven barrier on the west end of the lake, just below the steps from Court Farm Lane had finally collapsed and was replaced by a more substantial barrier, which we hope will last longer and be easier to repair in the future.

IMG_1129The main entrance gate from the Ashton Road had become rusty and a repainting job was started at the last working party. This was finished off today, so we now have a 'posh' looking gate.

 

 

 

 

IMG_1130The new bench, in memory of John Clifford is nearly ready for installation, so some preparation work was required to accommodate the bench and allow users of the bench to have a good view over the lake. Some brambles that would obstruct the view were cleared,  the path nearby was tidied and the edging repaired. The new bench will replace the old bench, which has now seen betterIMG_1131_1 days.

  • Call in at the Village Shop to buy cards/notepads or make a donation

  • Drop a donation in the box attached to the southern hide

  • The simplest way - go to our on-line shop where you can choose how you help

North Hide

plaque

There are two hides around the lake to observe the population of the lake. One hide on the south side of the lake is totally enclosed. This hide is secured by a combination lock - if you wish to use the hide, please contact one of the Nature Reserve trustees for the latest combination number. The hide contains a log book to log any sightings you may have while visiting the Nature Reserve (although a better and faster way to register sightings is via the sightings page on this website.

The second hide on the north side of the lake is specially designed to accommodate wheel chair access and is open at the rear. This hide was sponsored by the Evesham Round Table in memory of Rupert Ellis who was a prominent member of the Round Table and one of the dedicated group of volunteers who arranged for the purchase of the Reserve from Huntsman's Quarries. A plaque has been erected on the hide in his memory.

The logs contained in the South Hide are regularly taken down and made available on this website - just use the menus above to access the various reports.
