The volunteers tackled the somewhat unenviable task of clearing areas of the lake at Paradise nature reserve.

This job can be a little on the cold side but nonetheless essential work to keep the water open. Reed and Sedge are pulled from the central areas, this is done in the colder months to avoid any unnecessary disturbance to wildlife. Certain areas of the banks are also cleared to give other marginal aquatic plants a chance to prosper and increase biodiversity in the reserve.
