More scrub-bashing

and what a lovely day to do it - a crisp sunny winter's day. We managed to cut down scrub along the driveway from Ty Mawr Road and also clear the willow and buddlea from the 'triangle' on the other side of the changing rooms.

Saturday, 6 December 2008

Well, its that time of the month again - scrub-bashing time (above photos are from last month's work). We'll be out on the meadow along with Cardiff Conservation Volunteers tomorrow from about 10 till 4 and you're all welcome to join us. Hopefully, it'll be just as lovely a day as today - cold and crisp but sunny. I think tomorrow's task is clearing the buddlea and willow from the Ty Mawr Road entrance down towards the changing rooms. If there's time we can then tidy up any other small areas that need 'bashing'. If you've never done this before just turn up (we don't bite) and we'd love to see you - make sure you have sturdy shoes/boots on and suitable clothing just in case the weather changes. All ages and abilities welcome - work at your own pace and you don't need to stay the whole day, just an hour or two if you can. We'll be led by Edmundo the ranger in the morning then Gareth our resident ranger in the afternoon.

Enjoying the meadow

Well Ruby is practically a resident of the meadow and the sun was shining even if it was pretty freezing, so what better way to enjoy it from a log bench with a flask of coffee.

Look no willow

Well I eventually got some photographs of the finished product of our labours - the wetland area of meadow now has no willow in it. The willow in the background forms what is a small copse of various other tree species, including young oak. Then of course we have the only flowering plant in the meadow - gorse.
