We have finally built a replacement bridge over the ditch between the feeders, see photos. The old one was found after a tip off by another dog walker, it had been cut down and was being used as a form of step ladder in one of the air raid shelters, we also found all our other equipment taken from our shelter. These same people also cut through the camera cable to one of the owl boxes, hopefully they have gone now and do not return.
Natural England employed a contractor at the beginning of the month to remove the Japanese Rose from the side of the long pond, see photos, making access along the west side much easier.
