Common Road SMEE-Volunteers update

Here are some photos from the latest work session at Common Rd Smee.

Thanks to all those who turned out to help. The weather was very kind to us and we were able to hand remove an area of Stinging Nettles. We  hope to incorporate that area into the grassland over the next twelve months.

A further nettle section was cut back and raked off. A picture of the vegetation that was removed is enclosed plus a couple of photos of some of the wildlife that we saw today – a Large Skipper butterfly and a Southern Hawker dragonfly. Our next session to cut and rake off the meadow will be on Saturday 7th August.
