Wednesday's Work Party

Over 20 volunteers from Lloyds and the Cromwell Bottom Wildlife Group met on site to "Balsam Bash" and also to trim the riverside hedge and clean up some paths. A fine specimen of Poplar Hawk-moth. Laothoe populi was also found whilst the Balsam Bash was in full swing. We thank the Lloyds Volunteers for their valuable help with this essential work on the reserve.

The team assembles

and gets bashing

Poplar Hawk-moth. Laothoe populi

We made good progress. One of several clearings.
