Trail Blazing

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

Recent rain and sunshine has meant excellent growing conditions for grasses and reeds. The blustery winds have pulled phragmites over net rides and footpaths creating a lot of work. Here is a 'before' photo of the trail behind the reed bed in the scrapes!

Before Photo

The strimmer made light work of the task making the routes accessible once again.


During the sunny spells (there were also several heavy showers) butterflies were sighted. This Red Admiral was captured by Elizabeth. A group of visitors enjoyed photographing the Kingfisher on the lake which has been perching on the hand rail over the weir to feed on its prey!
