Wed 23rd May 2007 - Hasley Manor.

The above photographs and the following text is as reported by Carrie.
This was our second visit to Hasley Manor and there were several jobs on the list. A track had deep ruts which needed filling in so the area was smooth enough to grass over. One of the many ponds needed blocking off and a trench dug so fish could not enter and eat the dragonfly lava. There were trees to cut back and tidy and an area of reed bed that needed attention. The geese had gotten into it and had eaten all the fledgling reeds that had just poked their heads above the water. Wire was stretched around the posts to support chicken wire - hopefully this will keep the geese out and allow the reeds to regenerate. It was was glorious, hot day with carp feeding in the pond, numerous iridescent blue mayflies zipping around and a stunning emperor dragonfly (not normally seen at this time of the year). The photographs show the carp pond and the reed bed.
