And fun was had on the greenway today as we created a new habitat zone, and explored the fungi in the area. Just Aaron and myself today and we cracked on with removing canopy to let light in. We also raked all the leaves and bits of twigs and branches into little habitat piles. We also created a big dead hedge that will get a load of bramble growing over it, in the summer.
You can see the dead hedge forming as we cleared the ground. We thought about where the sun would be, and tried to open up windows in the canopy. It will be interesting to see what starts to grow in this area. We have disturbed the ground by raking it over, and this will help any dormant seeds to germinate.
A nice big bank of scrub that will grow over the dead hedge pile.
And onto the fungi…
Loads of really nice specimens happily growing in the area that we are working in. I will try and get them identified later in the week.
Lastly, moss it seems, is quite picky about where it wants to grow!!
Well that’s about it. Wednesday is the next one, removing the ash saplings between the underpass and the picnic clearing.
