Volunteers for Reed Cutting at South Milton Ley Please

Posted December 6th, 2014 at 11:17 pm

SOUTH MILTON RESERVE REED CUTTING
Every couple of years or so, Devon Birds' volunteers cut a hectare or two of the reed bed in South Milton Ley to regenerate growth.  It is expected the reeds will be dry enough to cut and burn by the end of the year and so the reed cut will take place on Sunday 11 January. Our mechanical reed cutter greatly reduces the work
of the volunteers but there is still plenty to be done by hand, gathering and burning the reeds. We plan to start around 9:30 am and have most of the cutting and burning completed by lunchtime.

Please contact  Vic Tucker (01752 216887)  if you are interested in helping with the reed cut this year.
Hope this will be possible. Let me know if you have any queries. Reed Cutting
