Wilden Marsh Sunday Workday

April’s Wilden Marsh Sunday workday took place yesterday. Fortunately, rain stayed away, but the weather was overcast and cold enough for hoodies and gloves – mine stayed on all day.

We worked the North Riverside Pasture, reducing willow and bramble scrub.

I’ve restricted the marsh cattle’s grazing to Hoo Brook and North Riverside pastures, the Swamp, and Northern Corridor to minimise damage to southern marsh orchids growing in North Pasture. The herd didn’t visit the work party, which is surprising as the cattle are very inquisitive. After the Wilden Marsh volunteers left site, I set off in search of the cattle and found them taking things easy in the Northern Corridor.
