Sunshine again at last

Tuesday, August 9th 2011

After weeks of weeding by volunteers, the heathland is looking fantastic as the heather is in full bloom.


Elsewhere, the heavy rain from earlier in the week combined with the warm temperatures, has provided many fungi with perfect conditions. Up in the woodland there are fruiting bodies of all different shapes and sizes.

Beautiful Fungus

This one really amused Brian as he went about photographing them!

Meanwhile, Bethany was hard at work carrying out a whole variety of summer maintenance tasks such as brushing the leaves off the bridges and fixing the wire on the boardwalks.
