Well actually bat boxes and a robin nesting box that we needed to get up. What could possibly go wrong?!
After consulting with our wildlife expert, Mick, we felt that the landing-ladders on the boxes were a tadge too short. Luckily we had the tools to improvise and the old boxes to utilise.
Lots of fun getting the things up and really looking forward to them being used.
This clearing has so much going for it. Our bench, bat boxes, the historic bridge, loads of wildflowers coming up where we eased back scrub in the winter, the Cawston Bridleway connection. It is such a great place to be, and holds so many memories of past workdays. I think this was our first clearing some eleven years ago when we started this great adventure.
Here is us having our coffee break and chat.
Thanks to everyone today, we were all superheroes in the way we got around the challenges, and Andrew, for making the things in the first place.
And another superhero is Jade, who sent me these beautiful pics of our wildflowers.
Proper talent and I really hope Jade becomes a regular contributor to the blog.
Next one is our weekender. Saturday 24th. All welcome, sturdy footwear and good gloves. Bring your own snippers so we are not passing stuff back and forth. Meet at the snowdrop bench at 10am
