Easter Holidays

The Easter holidays well and truly upon us and so is some lovely weather, hopefully it will stay like this for the long bank holiday weekend.
There have been plenty of families making the most of the weather, walking, cycling and playing in the woods. The play trail (on the Lime Kiln walk, starting at the Presthope car park) is proving very popular with young children and the bird hide with plenty of birds visiting the feeders is keeping both adults and children entertained.

There are plenty of migratory species arriving and I have never heard so many Blackcaps, there are also Swallows, Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers.

We have been working on all sorts of jobs lately including, checking fences, rounding up and moving sheep, clearing fallen trees, delivering logs, filling feeders and litter picking. There are now 12 Hebridean sheep grazing the grassland in the car park on the edge of Much Wenlock, they will reduce the spread of nettles and hogweed and provide better conditions for the more delicate wildflowers.Whilst checking fences we were treated to some stunning views!



We are on Facebook so if you are planning a visit or have already been it would be great to hear from you, it would also be great to share your photos and sightings with others.
