I don’t think any of us had our Weetabix this morning… Moving the bench was such an effort!
There it is… Just a few miles away!!
Chris, Marcus, Aaron and Paul made the trip down to the end of our patch. The scrub needed a little bit of a trim so people are not forced to jump into it if a cyclist comes from the other way!
It really is no fun having your clothes snagged by bramble when you are trying to do the right thing by giving way.
And that really is it. The views of open countryside, just a few hundred metres from the built-up areas, are lovely.
To sit at a bench and watch the view change with the season is simply priceless.
And if the view does not grab your interest, take a look a little closer.
We have mini-beasts.
If you are really brave, you can make friends with them…
Moving into spring, we will just be keeping the path clear, monitoring the bird and bat boxes, keeping the feeders topped-up, and weeding out bramble and nettles from our wildflower clearings. Plenty of photographing, identifying and recording opportunities and a real chance for us to slow down and actually enjoy the little slice of paradise that we have created.
With this in mind, I have ordered some picnic mugs and a flask for coffee. Please let me know what biscuits you would like.
Next week we are at the Cawston Bridleway bridge working northwards. Litter-picking and snipping back any encroaching shoots and runners.
Great morning, plenty of banter, a fitting end to the clearing season!
