Wed 1st Oct 2014 - The Bee Fields, Newchurch.

Tony's Photographs.

Alison's Photographs.

With the overnight showers cleared, the sun was back out for our GG session this week. A good crowd assembled in the car park ready to start work on the "houses and high-rise estates for bees". Regular readers of this blog will know that we have visited the Bee Fields many times before and our previous work was in evidence as we walked down to the work area, the patches we had cleared were swarming with bees entering and leaving their underground nests. Team GG were soon spread out between the trees, clearing the undergrowth and turf, so as to expose the sandy soil below. This allows the bees to burrow into the loosened soil. As the pictures show, we could give Barrett's a run for the money when it comes to developing housing in double quick time...! Some of the team went around the tree plantation removing the rabbit guards from the established trees and... of course... doing the usual litter pick.

Many thanks to Alison and Tony for the photographs this week.
