This session saw Glendale managers and Friends of Mayow Park working to tidy up the fruit bed and the mini wildflower area in the Triangle.
The first task was to remove the stepping logs in the fruit bed. Many logs had been covered by couch grass and those that were still visible were rotting and slippery. In a very short time they had all been moved to create an invertebrate habitat in a corner by the hedgerow. A robin came to join us with the promise of a feast and a frog or two hopped away as we disturbed their hiding place. Chris wheeled barrow-loads of woodchip to fill the small craters where the logs had been.
