Reed Bed

Odd sort of work day today. I seemed to get caught up in chopping back a load of scrub that probably didn’t need to be touched, and after about an hour Mike pointed out badger trails, so we stopped work altogether. John and Graham had a more productive session by removing a large tree between a couple of oaks that we want to keep.

However, it all changed when we decided to investigate what we though was a reed bed. We got down to it and indeed, there were reeds growing in a boggy stretch that was being fed by a fast flowing stream.

Reed bed.

This is really exciting because it means we have a whole new habitat to manage and a lot of different wild birds that we can attract. The bank that leads down to this reed bed is south-easterly facing so it really is a superb aspect in so many ways.

Thanks to all that made it today.
