Twenty six people joined us on 29th April for a wonderful Wildflower Walk. Despite the forecast we were blessed with good weather and even saw a few early butterflies. The wild bees that have overwintered in one of our duck boxes were finding plenty of pollen from flowers in the rough grassland and blossoming cherry and apple trees in our orchard.
Greater Stichwort, Germander Speedwell and Crosswort and other plants normally associated with hedgerows can now be found in great clumps in the middle of the field having benefited from our management regime.

Cathy McGarvey posted on our Facebook page; “Thanks to David, Matt, Jo + the others at the Barn Owl Trust for hosting a very enjoyable wildflower afternoon with a fascinating insight into habitat management for Barn Owls!”
We finished up with tea and delicious home-made cake in our beautiful wood lined Meeting Room.
