Reserve Manager Shaun Marriott reports on developments at London Wildlife Trust's Braeburn Park site in Crayford, and the sighting of a Red Kite there: We’re continuing the Weds and Thurs workday slots over the next weeks, mainly working on both of the acid grassland slopes to thin out broom and encroaching scrub on the boundaries (mostly buddleia, bramble and overhanging trees).

Braeburn Park habitat management work, Weds Feb 21st and Thurs Feb 22nd. Concentrating on the acid grassland and some mowing of the paths further down into the reserve. Please give prior notice if you can help, even the day before is fine.
We meet at the tool shed (by industrial estate on track off old Rochester Way) for the workdays around 10.30 but volunteers can meet on site at a time after that if preferred, they just need to contact me to find out where we are and not just turn up. We are usually packing up by 4 – 4.30pm, depending on weather and light conditions.
