Back to the woods April 2012

We have not visited Brae's Wood for quite some time now but we decided this month to go back to the woods to explore the changes.  Our stick piles are still there and we had a look to see if there were any creatures living in them.  As the weather is still quite cold there were only worms and slugs so we will check again when it warms up.  Great to see the changes happening now we are in spring.

Our Woodland

                                         This is part of our woodland behind our pitch!

Ann Chapman decided to introduce an enviromentaly friendly theme into our club aims. One of the intrests of the members was tree planting.
Her aim was enchancing biodiversity and creating a woodland for next generations.
The aim was acheived in two ways. First, planting trees and shrubs to increase a diversity of spaces for birds and insects. The second objective was to devlope a  pond to provide a natural habitat sutible for the species that inhabbit such enviroments.
