04.03.11 Cardiff Friday Morning Project Grangemoor Park Willow Pollarding

Today we went to Grangemoor Park on a most glorious sunny day under the watchful care of Community Park Rangers Alec and Raj. The fantastic, clear sunny weather made a much welcome contrast from the previous week's acer removal in Hailey Park where the camera was washed out in the rain (not worth blogging about as the pictures were rubbish).

The four volunteers, Raj and Alec and myself pollarded some of the willows on this fantastic site and were encouraged by the skylarks beautiful song while flying in the sky (I don't know how they got their name). These birds are one of the reasons why this site is so special and that we hope to get as many volunteers as possible at the end of summer to rake off another potential nest sites in time for next year; a perfect day for volunteering.
