Tree Walk and First Frog!

Thursday, February 16th 2012

The Tree Identification Walk was well attended and Jez gave us a silvicultural tour of the woodland. In addition to identifying various tree species, topics covered included everything from tree disease and timber yield to the conservation value of our native trees. Thank you Jez for a most informative and enjoyable event.

Whilst out on the walk the first frog of the spring was spotted. In a few days time, if the weather stays warm,  more and more of these amphibians are likely to be seeking out their spawning ponds!

Froggy goes a courtin!
