The task today was to build two otter holts on the site of this nature reserve. The site was a marshy area which had a good stream running through it. The Forestry Commission had been using their heavy machinery to clear a lot of trees and shrub at the edges of the site which provided us with the logs and small branches for the otter holts.
The team have finished the otter holt and are tidying up
