Churchyard Wildflower Area

In an effort to reduce the grass in the wild part of the churchyard we are going to plant some wildflowers. They are all species found locally such as meadow cranesbill, musk mallow and knapweed so they will ‘fit in’ with the flora already there. If you would like to help with the planting, please bring along a spade or trowel on Sunday 27th September at around 10.30am.

A Warning

Please be aware that the green mesh surrounding fat balls is a hazard to birds and should be removed. I knew that birds can trap their feet in the mesh but thought it would be safe in the suspended feeders. I left it on as it slowed the rate at which the birds were getting through the fat balls. However I recently found a starling hanging by its tongue which had become entangled in the mesh. When we cut it free it flew off so hopefully survived but it was horrible to see that I had unwittingly injured a bird I was trying to help.

Date for your diary

Looking ahead to November 22nd, OWLS are holding a bird box decorating afternoon for children and adults alike. Tea and cake will be on offer too. Watch out for more information.

Any questions please contact Grenville 680664 or any of the OWLS group
