A Wet and Windy Day

Tuesday, May 5th 2015

Today ten volunteers were busy tending to the young trees at Foxglove. Many of these are protected by plastic guards to allow them to grow without being eaten by deer.

Each year the guards have to be lifted to clear the vegetation that has grown around the base of the trees. This morning was very wet, but despite this, the volunteers worked hard and managed to clear the guards on a large area of trees.

Two of our volunteers went out with loppers to clear any overhanging low branches from the woodland trails.  An interesting find along the way was the first Striped Ladybird of the season.

Thank you to all the volunteers who braved the rain to help today.
