November Workgroup – Wildflower planting in the Wet

A big thank you to Brian, Frank, Ian, Isobel, Jonny, Katie, Lucy, Mick, Peter, Rachel and Tom for completing the fenced enclosures and planting out over 150 plants in the expanded mini meadow, sunny bank and riverside path despite the cold and mud, at least it didn’t rain! Additional thanks to Diane and Katie for helping us grow the plants in our back gardens and to Steve Peel for advising on species and locations.  You can see some of them here, see if you can guess what they are?

Plants grown from seed



Wildlife highlights included Little egret around the beck on the opposite bank,  a large flock  of long-tailed tits, a flyover of 8 fieldfare and 2 teal flying upriver
