Hot July but it’s the weather for ducks in August

A few hardy volunteers got a bit sweaty for July’s work task in the Enchanted Wood, erecting a new fence to maintain the boundary of the Enchanted Wood (our brash fence was simply too tempting for den builders). August sees our annual fundraiser the Duck Dash. Sunday 5th August from 11am (tickets on sale from c10am). Hope you can come along!

Hedgerow work along the Ellerburn trail

 

Our May worktask involved removing the trees tubes along the Ellerburn trail. A few years ago we planted a range of hedgerow plants including holly and hawthorne but now they are more established, it was time to remove the tubes now that they are less likely to be nibbled by deer and rabbits. We started the task last November – thankfully it was a bit warmer today!

A couple of us also did some more work on the forest garden which has burst into life this week. If you visiting the forest do call in to see it – and catch the Helen Sear exhibition in the courtyard at the same time.
