I haven’t posted anything in recent months, so here is a catch-up on activities.
The Dormice monitoring didn’t find any Dormice, unfortunately. But the boxes were found to have been used by insects, birds and a pair of field mice, see above.
In recent months, we have had assistance from the Herts & Middx Wildlife Trust. This has helped considerably with the major project to clear the invasive Sycamore around the Yellow Trail to the east of the Cottage. This will create a more open glade where one can admire the grove of mixed Ash and Oak.
We have also been thinning out the Birch trees in the ‘Heather Glade’ to the north of the car park. Here is Howard bringing down one of the very tall specimens.
