A Drain for the Rain

We rediscovered one of our drains this week. There is another one on the other side of the track-bed underneath all the scrub, which needs uncovering. We also cleared the inlet. We need to be extra careful not to disturb any nesting birds.

We need to keep the drains clear to stop the flooding. It will also increase the biodiversity if we have open running water available for wildlife.

Looking up and down and we are just starting to green up!

We carry on with just gently snipping back next week. We are allowed to share a coffee and macaroon for now. Hopefully things start to ease in the next week or so.

We also need to take a look at the bluebells around the Bridleway clearing. They are not the standard English variety so as much as it pains me, they really need to come out and be replaced with the real deal. I think I will let them flower and then remove them. I can replant in autumn.

We have loads to do over the spring and summer but trying to hold off as much as possible until we can meet in proper work groups.

Great to see so many people using the path for their daily exercise.
