Volunteers are here!

What a cracking start to the volunteer season! We have had volunteers signed up straight after our conservation working holiday from the 6th of April which is unusually early and from now on three volunteers at any time, booked solid until the end of August! The advantages of having volunteers so early in the season we have managed to take an early attack at the brambles that are clearly making an attempt of taking over the island, but not this year with our super dedicated volunteers! We have been fitting in some fun stuff to like,

Serious hedge trimming by pure muscle power!

And just so you don’t think it is all sunshine and fun every day we added a little mud with some ditch digging!
