Wed 26th July 2017 - Barrncourt Farm, Wroxall. GG # 695.

Alison's Photographs.

Mark's Photographs.

14 intrepid GG members braved the rain for Pesky Plant Pulling.  We were here just a few weeks ago and returned to carry on the good work pulling the Himalayan Balsam.  We split into two groups with some working down by the stream and in the adjoining fields, while the remainder walked up the road and into the field alongside the public footpath where the seeds are spread by walkers and their dogs.  By the end of the session considerable progress had been made and, as far as we could see, no pink remained in the fields.  We were accompanied by swallows swooping and catching insects and the calls of buzzards. 

Many thanks to Alison for both the photographs and editorial.
