Mission Accomplished!

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

The felling of diseased Sycamore along the top of the woodland was completed today in glorious Spring sunshine.

This work has been ongoing for the last few months and it is good to finally cross it off the to-do list!

The area is now ready to be replanted with a mix of native species such as Rowan, Hazel and Crab Apple.  Some of the volunteers also finished pegging down the logs lining the path.

The contractors are also making good progress; all of the work on the moorland is now finished and the first of the new bridges on the red route is now under construction.

From the kitchen window visitors have enjoyed watching a huge variety of bird species frequenting the feeders.  If you are interested in learning how to identify some of these garden birds why not join us during the Easter holidays for one of our birdwatching sessions.  All the details are on the events page.
