It was great to have access at the weekend to the East Cambridge Lakes, sometimes known locally as The Tins or Romsey lakes.
The public are not normally allowed in to the lakes as it is strictly reserved for Anglers only. However a work party of volunteers were allowed in to carry out some targeted conservation work for the day. The aim was to begin clearing sections of scrub with the view to open up areas attractive to solitary bees and wasps. The conditions around the Lakes are particularly suited to these kind of invertebrates.
