Again there were only four of us – Judi, Pete, Julie and Mick but we cleared around the tansy on the bank of New Meadow, near the cattle grid and under the interpretation board. The sward is improving all the time and the nettles, and hogweed are less of an issue. Mick also ventured into Blue Beck copse knocking back the nettles and balsam looking for two Elm trees we had planted there four years ago – one is over three metres tall but the other one couldn’t be found this year – it’s maybe under flood debris or playing hard to find!
No pictures of people working this time, just some of the creatures we saw! There were still a couple of Tansy Beetles about but the tansy plants were a hive of activity for other creatures.
Next work party – Thursday 20th July by the Pond at the south of the site.
