Dear Volunteers,

I thought you might like the above photograph, I spent yesterday up in Kielder with colleagues releasing Water Voles for the Restoring Ratty project, hopefully we can have a volunteer task doing this next year!
Just a quick email to remind you of Thursdays task:
• Thursday 17th August- Balsam bash- Mohope- 10.30am (leaving the office at 9.40am) Last Balsam bash of the season! How exciting! This will involve a bit of walking as we will start right at the the top and work our way down pulling anything that we have missed or that has grown up since we were last there. Then Mohope will be pretty much clear this year which is excellent, thanks everyone for your efforts on this one!
I will be on leave Friday 18th August and I will return on Tuesday 29th August ( I forgot it’s a bank holiday!)
• September – We will be doing lots of electrofishing, pesticide spraying (for those trained) and walkover surveys (from Hexham to Blaydon) during this month. Anybody who would be interested in these tasks please let me know, the walkover surveys can be done by volunteers without me in attendance, in pairs or small groups. Most of these tasks are weather dependent and may change last minute because of this, but all are a great opportunity to get out and about and we will be visiting some fab places in the catchment!
Graham has promised to rearrange his Invasives talk- I will send a date soon for September!
Hope to see some of you on Thursday!

Best Wishes,
