Report on work progress at Ogston 19th Oct

A tremendous amount of work has been carried out at Ogston during September and October and as you can see from the photos below, views from either the Sue Worsey or the Main Hide, are much improved.

In the near future we hope to get a ‘JCB’ on site to clear out and remodel the scrapes in front of the Main Hide and to re-membrane and gravel the main island and the bund, spits and islands of the re-modelled scrape in front of the Main Hide.  If sufficient money is available, the moat around the big island and ditches around the reed bed just north of the Main Hide will be cleaned out by the machine.  The aim of this work is to improve the habitat for breeding birds while at the same time, enabling club members better viewing.
