Great News

Our planning application for a pond has been approved by Babergh District Council. We hope to do the work during the winter, with help from James Buckle and his digger driver.
Meanwhile the wood is looking good, with many wildflowers growing along the rides, bees and other pollinating insects zipping about and an increasing number of butterflies flitting from flower to flower.
The Pyramidal Orchid has survived the winter and it was great to see a large patch of Yellow Rattle growing in the grass between the trees--I didn't spot them last year!

The clumps of Tufted Vetch were attracting the bees and butterflies.
