The North East Reserves Team at the Pond

“A fantastic turn out from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust (HIWWT) North East Reserves Team Tuesday group.

A huge thank you for your efforts, clearing storm damage branches in the car park edges and then attacking the birch encroachment on the dry heath land.

Volunteer John got an impressive fire going and most of the cut scrub was burnt up and stumps treated. I found it hard to keep up the pace collecting all the cuttings! HIWWT Leader Guy kept the group under reasonable control so that they didn’t clear all the trees!

There was a keen interest in the history booklet created by Fleet Pond Society (see a sample page below and visit here for a free download) as well as maps of the pond as those who had not been before were keen to come back to walk the footpaths.”
