Ed, Bernie and Lisa from Sustrans, the charity that looks after the greenway, joined us today, along with Mike from Butterfly Conservation. They seemed quite happy with our work and agreed to help create a habitat for Small Blue butterflies on the grassy area by the bridge that goes over the Coventry Road, and a habitat for Grizzled Skipper butterflies near the picnic clearing. Both are endangered species so it will help enormously.
Spotted loads of Speckled Woods today and even had an Orange Tip perch on me.
Chris did a good job of cutting back the many brambles that were near the path, the greenway is really greening up at the moment so it is important that we keep on top of this.
You can just about make Chris out, in the middle of the picture.
Lots of colour and loads of bees and other insects buzzing around.
Good day today and nice to know that we are on the right track.
Next workday is next Monday starting at 9am, working on the area between the new underpass and the picnic clearing, just pushing back the edges of the path.
