Dinsdales and the new path

Thursday, September 3rd 2009

Dinsdales have been working hard on our new paths today. John (pictured here) from Dinsdales was raking and whacking the stone on the path through the plantation.

Andrew and Raymond filled all the feeders and hoppers so the birds won't go hungry during this damp weather. They checked the reserve paths to make sure they are OK and also the woodland walk to see if there was any maintenance needed.

Ann, one of our volunteers found Enchanter's Nightshade in flower in net ride 2. This is a very delicate white flower with hanging seed pods. Brambles are black and shining all through the wilder areas and there are still patches of Betony bringing touches of colour to the autumn scene. The colours continue with Tormentil still in flower everywhere and the Phragmites in the scrapes, which is the most rich burgundy colour in flower.
