Terry's Photographs.










A patch of Bugle (Ajuga Reptans).



Rain greeted the gang as we assembled for the start of this week's session but by the time elevenses came around the clouds were parting.  That first slightly damp hour, as the photos show, was used to patch some of the more muddy stretches of paths which network around the site.  With that finished off, and after the break, we set about to manage the little butterfly meadow with what is now a regular task of limiting the sprouting bramble.  This area was once completely bramble but we helped clear it many years ago and it is now a wonderful patch of wildflowers and grasses which during the summer becomes alive with invertebrates, amphibians and lizards too.  More bramble was cut back in the woodland to lighten the area and yet more encroaching upon paths.  A busy and successful session!

Many thanks to Terry for the photographs and Mark for the editorial.
