Helped by the glorious weather, it was a busy day on site yesterday. A hardworking bunch of volunteers did some fantastic work hedge laying in the pygtle.

By the end of the day the hedge was almost unrecognisable from when they started work. Fantastic looking and also great for the wildlife, providing a more dense place for birds in particular to nest.

Work started at today’s working party on the new pond on site and it seems that quite a bit of the local wildlife has already moved in. Several newts were spotted in the new pond, in addition to the pond skater seen on the surface. As we were digging and using the soil to level footpaths and fill in other holes this small frog was also found in the grass.

I know they say that nature will often be quick to colonise new ponds, but I didn’t think it would be this quick!
