Wild Flowers.

The middle area of the wood is nearly ready for the pupils at Elmsett School to plant some wildflower plugs dring the second week of term. There's just a bit more strimming and clearing to do, then the areas for the plants need to be turned over to deter the grass from growing.
The wood is teeming with butterflies and bumble bees, attracted by the ragwort and other wildflowers. The mature coppiced Ash trees in the hedgerow seem free of dieback and are producing copious bundles of seeds.
