Change and the Same

Sunday, October 8th 2017

Knowing that you have a good photo of 'x' is one thing, but finding it is not an easy matter as your filing system leaves a little to be desired.  On the other hand it does mean that you look back at many photos and say oh or ah or wow.

For those who have visted Foxglove over the years, can you remember the bridge being in place before the conifer block was cut down?

The view is a little different now.

The conifer block was felled.

Volunteers got wet, very, muddy even more so, when clearing the brash on worky days.  A good fire was needed.

The area was replanted.

But some things stay the same.  Volunteer Worky Days still need a fire or it is not a 'proper' Worky Day!

Bird ringing continues through the year and Blue Tits are regular visitors to the ringing room.

Late summer flowers provide food for Peacock Butterflies.

Brimstone Butterfly caterpillars feed on Buckthorn and Alder Buckthorn.  These trees have thrived over the last few years and the numbers of Brimstone Butterflies have increased.
