Help from C Company of the Scots Guards

Thursday, March 26th 2009

Another sunny day at Foxglove. Willie continued to re-surface the access road. Chris and Heather came in to volunteer today. Chris and Sophie chainsawed the last of the gorse and hawthorn from the wet meadows, whilst Heather cleared up and did some pruning along the paths.

Lee, Kenny and Corrie from C Company of the Scots Guards

This afternoon Lee, Kenny and Corrie from C Company of the Scots Guards came to help us. They cleared up the last of the winter silage that the cattle hadn't eaten. Then they helped clear up gorse and hawthorn on the wet meadows.

The cattle were fed in the corral again in preparation for the vets visit tomorrow.

A peacock butterfly was seen for the first time this year.
