Quedgeley Local Nature Reserve

On Sunday 20th September 8 volunteers helped to clear reeds from about 2/3rds of the pond at Quedgeley Local Nature Reserve, that had become overgrown. This opened up the pond to benefit local wildlife. Indeed in the process we came across frogs, a female toad, two common newts as well as dragonflies and a comma butterfly; a Great Spotted Woodpecker called from the top of one of the trees and later on we watched 8 Buzzards soaring above . We also began to cut back some bramble and clematis from nearby areas of grassland to improve the area for wildflowers.
