EQ Getting stuck in (the mud) for nature

RG VolunteersEQ Consultancy were part of a group of volunteers that joined the RSPB for a team challenge at Sandwell Valley nature reserve.

The team got stuck in, digging over mud at the edge of the pools to create feeding habitat for wading birds.  They also rowed out to an island in the wetland to cut down willow trees in order to clear a runway for nesting birds.

As an existing corporate member of the RSPB with our client, it was decided to support an RSPB project close to one of their new developments in the West Midlands and it was great to also be able to spend a day at the reserve undertaking some hands-on conservation work, helping the RSPB to give nature a home.
