Report from work morning 13 May

On the work morning we were exploring the meadows with flora expert Rupert Higgins, who is carrying out a detailed survey for us.

The Lower Meadow is of course the better of the two. It’s of Site of Special Scientific Interest standard, but places are only designated as SSSIs nowadays if they are under threat, which Wapley certainly isn’t.
The plants in the different areas vary according to soil and drainage. Here you can see St Mary’s Church in Yate in the distance.

Thanks to Rupert for a very interesting morning. Our next work morning will be on Sunday July 8th, when we will doing some general tidying up and gathering information for future management plans and projects.
