We Have Gone All Posh

Wednesday workday at Berrybanks was very refined with coffee and biscuits at the half-way interval. I liked it. The only thing lacking was somewhere to sit, so we need to make something like this…

log seating

We cannot have a picnic bench on this part, but we can make a nice log circle. A job for Autumn and someone with a chainsaw, maybe?

Mick, Marcus, Victoria and myself made it today and litter-picked from the underpass to The Bear. We collected just three sacks full, thanks to Tom for his efforts whilst doing his DofE Bronze award.

The next litter-pick will be from The Bear, working northwards to the start, but not until May.

It was a little cold for wildlife spotting, but we did start our new activity of photographing and recording the wildflowers that we are seeing.

There were others, but we just need to gradually get up-to-speed, rather than go mad and then start to drown under the burden of trying to identify loads and loads of flowers all at once. Plus me and Marcus are still waiting for our ID books to arrive.

Both have been recorded on iRecord.

Lastly, look at what happens when people are directed around natural barriers…

…grass and wildflowers grow!

Until next time, back down the other end!
