Tidying up in progress

Bee on Buddleia

The Wapley tidying-up work morning on Saturday 2 July was cut short by incoming rain, but the eight of us cleared invasive growth on the railway bridge, leaving the plants that are most valuable for pollinators. We opened up the area round the bug hotels and removed some invasive plants from the Orchard area.

Our contractor is currently working on clearing the main paths through the woodland - the alternate warm weather and rain this summer has accelerated the growth along the paths.
