Volunteers brave the rain- again!

Dunster Estate volunteers have had another enjoyable day- despite the odd soaking!.. We have been clearing pathside vegetation around Conygar Wood to keep it open for visitors. It is satisfying to see that our efforts are gradually paying off, as after each time we visit Conygar the vegetation comes back a little less vigorously.

After Conygar we also carried out checks on Dormouse boxes that were erected earlier in the year. Though we drew a blank on Dormice we have found about half of them containing blue tit nests, so a result none-the-less! We will continue to monitor and keep you posted.

Volunteers are a vital part of the team here at Dunster, and carry out vital conservation, recreation and monitoring work across the estate.

Please feel free to contact us to get involved with the volunteers on 01643 821309 or email
