Mike dug up a load of bramble roots and the rest of us gave the ground a good old raking over. This will help any wildflower seeds that have been stuck in the soil to germinate.
We also saw a few early signs that the wildlife is starting to wake up. Mike spotted a Brimstone butterfly and I spotted a Comma. We saw a lovely pair of Buzzards floating above us, loads of bumblebees and a Green Shield Bug.
Mike suggested that we work on the large glade on the next workday, cutting back trees on the north-east corner and getting it even on both sides. We also need three or four of us to carry one of the picnic benches down to this glade so we can site it.
The mud has all dried away now and it really does look good.
See you on the next one!
