New Visitors, New Turf

Friday, March 31st 2017

The day began with a visit to the shops to get some lard for the bird feeders we were doing with an education group today. We took the children on a tracks and signs walk as well as making casts of Roe Deer footprints, pinecone feeders for birds…

...and roasting marshmallows around a camp fire.

The bulk of the afternoon was spent laying new turf in front of the Field Centre…

…this was a steady job which required a good back on picking up…

 …and laying the turf

Thank you to John Hayden for the repairs he did on the Lake Hide today, a great job! Also, Charlie and Colin for their continued help.
