All about the trees today…

We had a tree pack a couple of years ago from the Woodland Trust. Tiny whips and the protector to go around them. Some have survived and make the edge of our wildflower clearing.

What is not to love… In the summer this will be absolutely full of wildflowers and the wildlife will follow.

A few fungi finds

It’s all about that balance between scrubby bramble, decent wildflowers, a path for walkers and cyclists and catering for the wildlife. I haven’t got a clue if I have this balance right, but we keep trying to do the right thing for everyone and everything. However, we are following what our Management Plan suggests and also what Warwickshire Wildlife Trust is doing.

One of our picnic benches is in this clearing…

Having a week off next week and then seeding the week after. After that, we move on to our wildflower clearing at Potford Dam. Same thing really. Just clear it out and let it come back next year.

Lastly, we found a bloody-nosed beetle at Potford Dam. It was reluctant to get off me so probably enjoying the warmth of my skin.

Just trying to create a slice of wildlife and a place for people to chill out and meet new friends in this crazy world that we live in.

    Hi Paul, There were 5 of us @ birdfeeder area today. It was unclear what we were supposed to bring or do. We did not see anyone else at all. I only came down as I had heard nothing about a restart for volunteers from Sustrans. The bird feeders were empty and stacked by the bench (up bank)
    Cheers see you soon
