Cold work, warm glow

Huge thanks to everybody who braved Saturday’s wind, rain, sleet and mud to plant up the flood meadow hedge – and to everyone who served delicious soup, sausages and cake at the end. Despite the bitter weather the fantastic turnout meant we managed to get the entire job done, including installing protective fencing on either side of the new plants. When spring comes along keep an eye out for fluffy lapwing chicks and the spectacular evening display-flights of snipe – now much safer thanks to everyone’s hard work.
