Last Wednesday we had a volunteer training day called ‘woodland walk’ led by Area Ranger Alistair. We organise a training day every other month so that our volunteers can mingle and gain more knowledge about the property. The woodland walk gave our volunteers an overview of the property, its past and our management. Twelve volunteers joined us as we explored the north end of the edge.
The day started slightly hazy with cloud sitting on the edge but brightened up later, becoming warm enough for us to spot speckles woods, red admirals and this comma butterfly.
