East Devon District Council’s Countryside volunteers already have lots to celebrate in 2017.

More than 300 hours have been dedicated during January, allowing the team to achieve great things.

Volunteers at Seaton Wetlands have opened the Discovery Hut each weekend to welcome visitors and have dedicated an amazing 82 hours of service to the team, as well as talking to more than 400 visitors.

The Tuesday Task Force at Seaton Wetlands has been very busy this winter, working more than 125 hours planting trees to create a new hedgerow and creating bird box, bat box and dormouse box kits ready for the wildlife gardening taking place there on Tuesday, February 14.

What’s that bird? sessions, which are run by volunteers, have also helped 20 people to discover more about the birds found along the Axe Estuary.
