Meadow news - December 2019
Our work day on Saturday 7th December was attended by six of our volunteer team. The weather was good and we continued brush cutting invasive brambles along the bank of the Nadder at the western end. We have now completed our task to reopen views of the river for meadow visitors opposite Nadder island.
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 can be seen along the river and occasionally a kingfisher flashes past. The first of the winter visitor Gooseanders has been seen and there has been a report of an otter on the river. Cetti's warblers can still be heard singing along the river.
