An Outdoors Day

Monday, July 3rd 2017

After what feels like weeks of heavy rain, today was a sunny day at work. It was too good a day to spend indoors. After all the rain the grass has been growing rapidly so the first job was to get the lawn mowed. I couldn't help noticing how nice the bird ringing net rides were looking- many were covered in a carpet of flowers. 

Next the entrance sign to the reserve was painted. This is the “Before” picture. The “After” picture was looking rather patchy as the paint was wet so I haven’t included it here, but it is looking much better.

To finish the day, the wheelbarrow, mower and bird seed sheds were all scrubbed down, ready for the next sunny day when they too will get a coat of paint.

Meanwhile, it is worth noting that Foxglove is back on TV on Tuesday night at 5pm, in a replay of the Tony Robinson Coast to Coast programme. This time it can be found on a channel called Spike (number 31 on freeview channels).
