Friday 4th October

The Coastal path has been completed with the exception of the marker arrows on the posts. The work is to a very good standard but probably not necessary and the steps off the tip, which were removed to allow access for the vehicles, has been replaced with a very steep gravel path.
The farmer has now moved his cattle down onto the southern most area and also increased the number to between 30 and 40. One can be seen in the photo with a couple of Magpies on it’s back, probably removing big juicy ticks.
We have started with the feeders again and it hasn’t taken long for the birds to find them, a Jay and a Great Spotted Woodpecker were there yesterday.
Natural England have again cut and burned the Japanese Rose on the side of the long pond, this a repeat of what was carried out in October 2017.
