Our last day of the summer in 2018

The greenway did have a feel about it, that it had given its all over the hot summer and was now rapidly falling into a sleepy rest over autumn and winter.

Chris, Marcus, Aaron and myself started at Potsford Dam and worked south just gently snipping back the scrub to get a bit of width.

The scrub needs to be pushed back one metre on each side, on an alternating basis, This will create a wavy path with little hot-spots for wildlife. We cannot do this yet because there is a rich harvest of fruit and nectar still on offer to wildlife that need to stock up for the winter.

Plenty of fruit on offer.

Nectar still available from some late flowers, but getting rare.

Cawston Reservoir is still looking very sorry for itself. I wonder when the levels will be back to normal.

Great day today.
