One man came to mow…

Well, probably several men! Walkers will have seen that only one third of the “narrow side” of Wapley Common, where the orchard is, has been mown. This is so that that other two thirds of the grass will fall as a dense mat and provide a habitat for mice and voles.

These small mammals are ideal “owl takeaways” and will encourage our local tawny owls (and perhaps others) to nest in the near side of the woodland.
