Meadow news - January - March
Winter season is well established now the trees are still bare but the willows have started producing their pussy willow catkins, yellow with pollen. Although still cold, bumble bees can be seen feeding there on sunny days. The paths have been very muddy but have dried out a little recently. The river Nadder is still running high and Canada geese are pairing up along the river. Salisbury City Council Parks department have replaced the information boards which were damaged by vandals last summer. Hopefully these much stronger ones will survive better. On sunny days the first butterflies have made an appearance. The sulphur-yellow Brimstones shining in the early sun. The meadow continues to be a place of peace and joy during the Covid 19 pandemic, enjoyed by families, dog walkers, footballers and joggers alike.
