On our web site we're planning to publish each week a collection of photos showing what's happening in the reserve, and I've just posted for this week here



Walking round today I realised I could also have been doing some litter picking, or even with the right tools, some conservation work, e.g. getting rid of the invasive laurels. If anyone wants to join me in this, PM me here, or leave a comment on our web site.

By the time you get round to this, I might even have put a contact form up there Smile

Here's how it's looking today. There's definitely a flush of green appearing as I look down the length of the pond



For more, and a gallery of 20 more pictures follow this link including these thuggish parakeets hogging the best nesting holes

It was great meeting up with Ema Felix of the Secret Adventurers club on this last walk, and learning about the Facebook groups she'd set up for the Friends of Dacres Wood



so now I'm an admin on that group, and she has editor rights on our web site



Won't be long before this photo



appears on our site. I've never actually seen the newts there myself ...

Had to do some image processing for the newt

while the toad tadpoles nibble on the rush stalk ...
