BOLDON FLATS CLEAR UP 23-10-10
A few of us from the Conservation Trust spent a couple of hours at Boldon Flats this morning. During the week an area next to the roadside was levelled off with a digger to give people better views of the pond as it had become wildly overrun of late. Unfortunately the digger had dug up a load of glass and enamel and it all had to be cleared before any of the farmers cattle (or any birds for that matter!) damaged themselves. We ended up with 10 buckets full of stuff that was taken away! I must admit it was a hard, back breaking two hours in horrible weather but its a great feeling knowing I've done my little bit to make things better for the local wildlife. I'm extremely proud of being part of this group.
