Treat yourself to a remote view of Slimbridge

The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge is a fascinating place, especially in this cold weather. Here is a video of the birds being fed on the Rushy this morning:

What's more they also have live webcam feeds of Swan Lake and the Rushy - you can watch the daily wild bird feed at 4pm, or watch the wild birds anytime of the day or night! (Note - the webcam page needs Flash, and takes a few seconds for the video feeds to load - please be patient)

Report from work morning 20 November

A well-attended work morning saw us tackling planting on the woodland edge alongside the Lower Meadow. We planted 150 trees, and as usual they were all traditional species for the habitat: Wayfaring tree, spindle, hazel, hawthorn, purging buckthorn, dogwood, and guelder rose.
