Volunteer Morning – Saturday 3rd February 2024

The February volunteer morning took place a few days ago. As you can see in the accompanying photos, it was an overcast morning but surprisingly warm. Primroses are in flower and the bluebells that we planted a few years ago are coming through. Self-seeded foxgloves are also growing near the entrance’s steps.

The recently felled robinia trees can be seen, and have been cut into logs for use elsewhere in the woodland. A tree also fell in the last few days and can also be seen here.

Committee member Andrew Slade is shown hard at work sawing through branches so that these can be used elsewhere.

In the area of the entrance previously felled trees are being sorted into similar-sized branches to create more “bug hotels” for wildlife. The branches will eventually rot and return nutrients back into the ecosystem.
