Thanks to Neil, Masha, Mark and Judi for helping tidy up the Bee Bank on what was a very pleasant evening. The area had been inundated with couch grass and whilst some attacked that with shears and carried off the arisings, others, including Masha and Judi in the photo, pulled the grass from the ‘green roof’ and replaced it with sedum.
The area around the pond beneath the bank was tied up with a spade and the face that had collapsed a bit was given some cosmetic surgery. The bank appears to have been well used but we are not sure if anyone is actively monitoring?
The next work party is on the Thursday 7th June from 6:30 pm in the Pond enclosure at the south of the site, where we will be cutting back competing vegetation from the tansy clumps and similarly along the Ings Dyke enclosure.
