Brown's Wood Work Party

The December LROS conservation work party spent a lovely morning coppicing hazel at Brown's Wood. Log and brash piles were created. We also erected three birch stumps to provide potential Willow Tit nesting sites. Thanks to Chris, Carol and Pete for all their effort.

Cropston Reservoir Work Party

Five LROS volunteers and the Bradgate Park Young Volunteers helped to clear scrub from the banks of Cropston reservoir. This has helped to improve the view of the lake from the slots in the wall. A massive thank you to all involved.

Watermead CP Work Party

Six LROS members spent Wednesday morning clearing invasive saplings from the reed bed at Watermead CP. Without this effort we would rapidly lose one of the largest areas of Phragmites in the county. A massive thank you to Mick, Phil, Chris, Carol and Linda for their enthusiastic help.
