Another good and hard morning’s work on what may in time become our fourth cattle meadow, which will help the wild flowers. It will also help preserve unimproved grassland – an increasingly rare habitat throughout England. Tree work is already being undertaken by FoSL which should increase the meadow area by 40-50%. The final fencing should allow us to create another hedge with 500-600 hedgerow plants – more great habitat for small birds and mammals.
We also recruited 4 new members who paid up on the spot. A splendid morning thanks to Russell Ball, Nigel Daley, Ken Davies, Julia and Phillip Davies, Peter Ewer, Philip Gibbs, Ray Kristofiak, Mike Lansdowne, Tony and Sheila Lee, Alison Marriott, Eileen Petch, John Tey, Ian Watson and Jack Westbrook.
