Volunteers - South Milton Ley Reed cutting 21 Jan 2017

Posted December 29th, 2016 at 9:56 pm

Each year, Devon Birds' volunteers cut part of the reed bed in South Milton Ley to regenerate growth.  It is expected the reeds will be dry enough to cut and burn and so the reed cut will take place on Saturday 21 January 10.00am, so please let Vic Tucker or Nick Townsend know if you will be able to help and make a note in your diary.

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.  It is a friendly atmosphere and an enjoyable few hours of physical work!

Bring wellies, wear warm old clothes and if you have long-handled bagging hooks and/or rakes please bring them along as well.

Please contact  Vic Tucker (01752 216887)  if you are interested in helping with the reed cutting or Nick Townsend.  Tel: 01548 560243  Come along for 2 or 3 hours; join in and help make a difference.
