Workday, Saturday 14th Sept 2013

At today’s workday we cut back the blackthorn on top of the hill. Blackthorn produces sloes and can climb into straggly trees which need to be pruned or hedged if it is too offer decent habitat for breeding birds in the spring. This spot is where garden warblers can be found drinking nectar from the small (and edible) white flowers in spring.
