30th November: Tree planting with the Woodland Trust at Avoncliff Wood.
Heather is one of the most glorious sights to see on the moorlands in August, unfortunately the effects of the fires on some moors have reduced its intensity of growth and colour.
It is now August and by the time you read this the skies over Bradford on Avon will be quiet and the Swifts well on their way to their winter home in Africa. However, the Swift group remains active and would very much like to collate a list
Volunteers needed for the annual rake up of the wildflower meadow at Bearfield, off Ashley Road, 12th September 10 – 2 pm.
All over the UK events were held as part of Swift Awareness Week (June 22 -30) to highlight the decline in numbers of these amazing birds and to demonstrate how they can be helped.
CHALLENGES AND ACTIVITIES:
As previously reported enriching our soils with organic matter will help their growing power.
Volunteers needed! To monitor swifts especially nesting sites. Let us know if you see a swift go into or out of a space in a roof or a nest box. The time is now as the chicks emerge they will be feeding them.
