Bonfire baked potatoes

Tuesday, September 22nd 2009

As you can see today was a good day to come and be a volunteer. We had a huge clear-up in the plantation and a very big bonfire. Stan, Andrew, Val and Hilary were braving the heat to put the brash on the top. Sophie's lunchtime baked potatoes nearly got lost in the ashes. They were found at last- blackened and burned! Inside was beautifully cooked so she still had a hot lunch!

Volunteers by the bonfire

In other work done today the thistles were pulled from areas where they are taking over and new bridges were installed at stragetic places on the wet meadows to enable maintenance to take place.

The new edition of Undergrowth has now been printed and will be winging its' way to you if you are a Friend of Foxglove. The events programme till the end of the year has been included.

The rest of the Painted Lady butterflies hatched this morning.
