Volunteering at Chilswell Valley
I was one of the first volunteers on the Wild Oxford Project at Chilswell Valley nature reserve. After exploring the site we cut down hawthorn and other shrubs that were preventing the smaller plants from growing in the wild flower meadow. We saw skylarks, buzzards, moths, a woodpecker, a large crane fly, brimstone and speckled wood butterlies and much more. It was difficult to record a good list of species as it kept pouring with rain. It was also too wet to take my camera but I managed to borrow Mum's at the end. Can't wait until next time. Thanks Andy and Judy for teaching me so much.
