You can report your sightings and send your photos from Southrey Wood to John Davison at: @email
If you would like to visit the site or any of our other sites in Lincolnshire, please take a look at our Events.
Dates arranged are as follows. (All 10 til 3ish)
It is area 7 this winter, the piece nearest the deer tower. As it's a relatively small area and fairly small timber I'm hoping we will be able to get on reasonably quickly and perhaps find one or two extra bits to do.
At present, we are still not able to use chainsaws so are limited to hand tools only, and will just have to get on as best we can.
As a consequence, I would ask that people who can come out help cutting down the trees and shrubs, rather than just taking out wood for themselves- we can spend so time towards the end of the day clearing out cut material.

Lovely sunny day, though still cool but Comma and Brimstone on the wing.
Jay calling, Muntjac "barking" and Spring flowers emerging.
Glorious day reflected in the turnout of 15 volunteers.
Managed to complete the designated square and conclude the seasonal workparties.
A big thanks to Steve again for organising the events.
....and of course to all the volunteers who turned out.
A good turnout today with 16 volunteers. First workparty butterfly of the year - a Brimstone.
Perhaps the after-effects of the New Year celebrations but still 9 volunteers turned out to continue the work.
