Once again a group of pupils form Berwick Academy visited us to undertake activities as part of their John Muir Award. As usual, they helped us with the seemingly never ending task of controlling creeping thistle, or thistle thwacking as it is affectionately known! They also had a go a trying out the methodology we use for monitoring the wildlfowl on the Mire Loch - not an easy task as, with all the chicks about at the moment, it can get a bit confusing. Nevertheless, they most certainly seemed to enjoy their time with us - and many thanks to them for all their help! Here's a few photos of them in action!
