On Saturday our group cleared over growing vegetation from a footpath at Toad Holes Beck that runs at the back of the pond. It was a lovely but cold morning but we all soon got warm as some tackled the Bramble and other started litter picking.
The path was given a good make over and is now ready for Spring.
We all had a nice treat when a low skein of Pink-footed geese flew over to the S/W. Also I noticed in an area that we had cleared of Himalayan balsam in the summer a nice patch of new Rushes that had appeared. I have checked them out and believe they maybe Jointed Rush Juncus articulatus However, I have contacted Peter Gurney from YWT who is more botanically minded than me for his opinion.
