We covered some ground today…

We certainly did cover a lot of ground. We met at Berrybanks and headed south, just snipping back any bramble that was starting to leap across the path. Wildlife superheroes today were Mick, Dale and myself and we got down to the bird-feeder area and then back.

A quick look up and down shows how we are looking. We need path, grass, lower flowers, higher flowers and the shrubbery and trees/hedge on the edge, ideally.

The seed feeders are hammered but I keep strapping them up. We are getting our money’s worth whilst the squirrels are getting their money’s worth of our free food.

Loads of butterflies and other insects today, but trying to do a survey really needs to be a day just for a survey. Trying to work and survey just does not work.

And this is an area we cleared of scrub last year.

It is now full of rose-bay willow herb so will have purple flowers in the summer and be a great nectar source.

We can pat ourselves on the back for this.

Lastly, a video clip of our bird-feeder area. It really is something special.

Next one will be from the bird-feeder area and head down just snipping and clearing the growth around the benches.

Our Wednesday workdays will then close and Mondays will restart.

Thanks all, today.
