This is a lovely time of year. The wood is brimming over with wildflowers, bees, birds and insects. Not so many butterflies about this year, Lots of Hover Flies and other flying beasties.

All the hedges surounding the wood are old and have mature and coppiced trees dotted along them for added interest. Sadly the hedge that we were working on today is atarted to have gaps in it where animals and people cut throught from the meadow.Ways of restoring the hedgrow was discussed as we worked and we decided to block an expanding gap at the back of the play equipment, to encourage the children to use thenearby bridge acess into the wood.
