Our second Thursday evening work party of 2018 will meet at the Pond at the south of the site. Now we begin our regular cutting back of vegetation encroaching on the tansy plants around the Pond, and if possible along the Ings Dyke. Without this management we wouldn’t be able to easily count the Tansy Beetles and would find their food plants being dragged downwards and smothered by competing species. The Pond compound contains our main population of Tansy Beetles.
Work starts from 6:30 pm and wellies advisable. Shears will be useful although we have a supply.
