August newsletter

We've had a great summer with wall to wall sunshine (the joys of living in East Anglia - luckily we don't have a garden as such), two new barn owl chicks fledged and ringed and the millwheel reinstated in the existing pit in front of the cottage.  It should generate some electricity for both the cottage and the workshop where the courses are held.  The pond had a dreadful infestation of blanket weed but, thanks to a new product called Viresco, it has virtually disappeared.  Many thanks to the Forest School Campers who valiantly battled with it on two occasions.
