  • Itโ€™s time to ring the Kestrels! Our local birder who installed the kestrel box 3 years ago came along to do so but we needed a few pairs of hands for these beauties ๐Ÿฃ
.
Out of the 6 eggs 5 of the chicks have thrived and the ringing of them will help us be able to track their travels through life when other keen birders spot their rings and track them back to beginning life at @clandonwood ๐ŸŒพ
.
Their downy feathers will soon malt away to reveal their mature feathers and they will soon be out in the meadows with Mum and Dad who will teach them hunt. Weโ€™re all so proud at @clandonwood that we have created a safe space for life to continue for all species and thank you to all the families for respecting the meadows and wildlife ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • The Sainfoin (Onobrychis) flower is one of the more beautiful seen in the meadows at the moment with its long flowering head in an eye catching pink ๐ŸŒธ
.
This flower is a favourite of many animals being pollinated by Bees and one of the favourite grazing plants of cattle and sheep. Roughly translated Sainfoin mean โ€˜good hayโ€™ as it has many benefits for grazing livestock. So when this is bailed up at the end of Summer it will be enjoyed by Eddie and his pals back at his home ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ„ ๐Ÿด

  • Some of the plants in the meadows have a white froth on them but donโ€™t be alarmed! This is Cuckoo spit, not the nicest of names but isnโ€™t actually what it says and is not the saliva of a Cuckoo bird. โ˜๏ธ
.
This white froth is in fact secreted by the nymphs of a sap-sucking insect known as a froghopper. It is believed that it is a defence mechanism against predators in this more vulnerable state. This secretion doesnโ€™t affect the froth of the plant and once this insect reaches adulthood it will no longer produce this liquid. ๐Ÿ’ง

  • On Sunday the 26th May between 10:30am and 1pm we have our Tea, Cake and Company โ˜•๏ธ This occasion is open to everybody.

These drop in days offer a chance to be among others who share the experience of loss.

Talking can help - knowing others who have experienced something similar is a relief.

It is a safe place where death is not a taboo subject. It is not about offering professional bereavement support - but about kindness, consideration and company.

No need to book in, just drop in.
