This month we will be checking and cleaning out the bird boxes on both the reserve and in the nearby wood and, subject to the weather conditions, having a bonfire.
Meet at the reserve on Saturday, 18th February at 9:30 am. We will finish around lunchtime. All members are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. Please wear appropriate work clothes, stout shoes, boots or wellies, and gardening gloves or equivalent. Most tools are available on-site but bring along anything you think might help; this month a short ladder, loppers, ‘Marigolds’, a small paint scrapper and a pen could prove useful.
Organised work parties take place at the Jim Mart reserve on the morning of the third Saturday in every month, except in December. For further information about the reserve visit the Jim Mart NR pages on the Ogston Bird Club website, or contact Peter Faulkner by email ([email protected]) or on 0784 214 8888 nearer the date.
