It was a bit weird knowing that there was a workday on the greenway but not being allowed to attend, due to my back still having a load of stitches in. However, it was in safe hands with Aaron, Marcus and John beavering away.
The redundant picnic bench from the bird-feeder clearing now has a new home down the path a bit.
We probably need to brush-cut around all the benches at some point and then keep on top of the areas that we want to stay as path, over the spring and summer. We have funding for another brush-cutter from the #fieldgoodgrant so we will have the tools to keep it all down. I am looking into tool storage options because quite a few times we have been caught out with the wrong tools for the job.
I have added to the bird feeders during the week and we now have fat balls, seed mix, sunflower hearts and peanuts. We have a commitment to keep the feeders full, once the birds start to rely on them over the winter months. I cannot wait to find an hour or so to just sit at our communal bench with a coffee and see what birds use the feeders.
John discovered a new fungus:
We could really do with someone on the team who enjoys identifying all of our fungi finds.
Thanks guys for the hard work and thanks John for sending me the photos. Looking forward to getting back on it in February.
