September tasks have included clearing the stream at Leythorne Meadow just south of Chichester – some of us just love getting wet and muddy! Two new volunteers came plus our Green City/District and County Councillor and we found native crayfish in the stream which was amazing.
We also had a wonderful day on our first task of the autumn at Levin Down in glorious sunshine, crown lifting yews which are poisonous to cattle which are being brought in soon to help keep unwanted vegetation down. We disturbed a hare and Rob identified a Roesel’s bush cricket, we saw kites, buzzards and ravens and the blackberries were good too!
