Ruxley working group numbers grow – 14 help at September 27th event

Sunday 27th of September saw a glorious Indian summer day for the Ruxley Gravel Pits Nature Reserve [RGPNR] working party crew. Participation had increased to 14 people, who got stuck into the season’s regrowth of plants that would gradually shade or dry out parts of the site too much if left unchecked. 

With all the disturbance from hacking, sawing and the bonfire there was little to see except a pair of Mute Swans and the cygnets. We also heard a Water Rail.

There was a good turnout at today's Ruxley Gravel Pits Nature Reserve  habitat management event.
