Other jobs were lopping the thin branches and piling these up for a bonfire next weekend and generally tidying the area of twigs etc. The final few trees were removed to complete the "ride" and then plenty of knapweed, meadowsweet and nettle seeds were thrown around by the children to encourage flower growth for nectaring insects.
Next job is to open a bank account and begin applying for grants so we can purchase some quality nest boxes, bee hotels and bat boxes. Our next work party is Sunday 13th December and it is hoped that these boxes will be put up during this session.
