Bats, brambles, blackthorn and benches
It was a busy session last Sunday morning at the Duesbury Nature Reserve.
The volunteer-made bat boxes were installed in some trees in the protected woodland; extremely enthusiastic bramble and blackthorn cutting went on for three hours, building on last months' work opening out the paths, and the oak benches at the main circle were cleared of broken glass, soil and plants.
In addition, some heavy lifting got the first sections of asphalt path cleared to their full accessible width. Once this is done for the whole path, the best views in Derby will at last be open to everyone!
Everyone is welcome to book into our sessions- they're free, for all ages (under-16s please bring along a responsible adult) and a great way to get exercise and meet people in a covid-safe way.
