Wed 18th Aug 2010 - Alverstone Mead.

Following last week’s cancellation of the hay baling, the weather gods were much kinder during this week’s visit to Alverstone Mead, and we managed to bale all of the section of Skinners Meadow that had been cut using the very smart new multi-purpose tractor. This was partially funded through the Sustainable Development Fund run by the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Unit (AONB), which is intended for small community projects of all kinds that benefit the work of the AONB Partnership. Rolling the bales was a risky process this week, as we had to steer clear of a substantial wasp’s nest which John (the Warden of the Mead) found in the middle of the field - he very kindly put a small fence round it and a flag, so none of us managed to get stung. Having finished the baling, we cleared the boundary of the field edges of bracken and pitchforked the bracken cut last week into piles for burning.
