We are being so careful at the moment with nesting birds. We are removing the last of the trees on the ballast ridge, so that we have a dry path, and give the muddy old path chance to grass over.
Four of us today, Carrina, Marcus, John and myself, with a brief cameo from Aaron.
One more session on this last bit next week, and then we can flip into spring and summer mode.
We still need to get the bird-boxes up. We are very late so they might not get used this year, but will be ready for next year.
Here is an interesting photo – last week I took a shot of a lovely Jelly Ear fungus. This is how it looked today.
That is the life-cycle of a fungus, I guess.
Found another fungus.
Pretty poor shot though. My iphone is really struggling to get close-up shots.
Thanks for the great company today. I was feeling quite miserable about the whole railway-path down to Draycote thing, but you all allowed me to get it off my chest and restore my confidence that we are on the right route.
Looking forward to next week and then getting back to alternating week-days and weekends in April!
