Marcus and myself made it this week. We topped up the bird-feeders and then headed south just snipping back any bramble growing across the path, and picking up any litter. We got to the Potsford Dam bridge so a lot of ground covered.
What we need to be doing next month is rolling back the scrub, digging out the bramble roots, and seeding the bare earth with our wildflower meadow seed mix.
This month is where we are caught between the seasons and cannot really do much. The bird-nesting season is over, but there is no way that I am going to cut back the fine crop of fruit that is there for the wildlife. They will fatten up on this as they get ready for winter.
Being so close to it, we can really see how the madly vigourous growth is now really slowing down as the summer ends. Really quite interesting to see.
Next one is Sunday 16th and much of the same.
