Carillion Workday

Friday, June 17th 2011

Twelve people from Carillion came to volunteer for the day today.  The threatened rain stayed away as they helped weed the heathland of invasive species.

You see them here at the end of the day with the newly cleared Heathland in the background.  Thanks to Kevin for arranging this workday and to everyone who came and gave their time to help.  We look forward to a return visit in September!

After lunch this spider was found on one of the work gloves.

She was very protective of the egg case she was carrying and as soon as she was put back on the heather she scurried away into the undergrowth.
