Early cowslip

Wednesday, April 1st 2009

10 volunteers were here today. We tidied away all the felled logs from the front of the hide and finished the bark path up to the wet meadows. The last of the gorse and hawthorn was burnt on the wet meadows area. It was glorious up there this afternoon, with curlew calling and the sun shining down, reflecting off the water.

The net rides continue to be pollarded. This is ongoing for the next two weeks.

A grey wagtail was seen late afternoon flying from the vole ponds over towards the moorland.

The early cowslip is in flower in the back garden.
