Meadow news - March 2020
Our work day on Friday 13th March was attended by seven of our great volunteer team. The weather was good and we worked digging out invasive bramble roots, brush cutting brambles and thinning out the overgrown copses.
Two disease resistant elm saplings have been planted in the meadow. These will hopefully survive to replace those in the meadow hedgerow which have succumbed to Dutch Elm disease.
In the meadow herons and egrets can be seen along the river and occasionally a kingfisher flashes past. The winter visitor Gooseander ducks have been seen and Cetti's warblers can still be heard singing along the river. The Nadder is currently dropping from it's very high level and the river paths are drying out.
