There was another successful activity day at the Queslett Nature Reserve on Saturday6th Nov. The weather held out and a lot of pruning back off paths and clearance work was carried out. Members also cut back over hanging branches on the Queslett Road boundary even though the Council should have done this work. Stephan Bodnar the Councils Bio Diversity officer was hand to answer a number of questions about the wild life in the reserve. The Friends of the Queslett Nature Reserve also signed up a number of new members.

On the down side there has been a complaint by one anonymous resident about members of the FQNR parking outside the reserve and making a noise?. I was not aware of any noise ? but I would ask all visitors to the reserve who use the the reserve not to park too close to the Ashworth Road entrance but if possible in Booths Lane and be considerate to the residents who have to park there.
There is also an entrance to the reserve off Old Horns Crescent near the ASDA super store.

We are now hoping weather permitting to hold a litter picking morning before the end of the but we will let member know if we can.year.
