Addition to Grafton Work Parties

Gwen and Trev T are regular members of Grafton Work Parties.  Now Gwen has produced an addition to the gang.  She has had 5 pups.

This happened when we were mowing the rides in July (we think).  So a true Grafton product.

A glut of Red Admirals

Cyril did the transect this week and found and found 23 Red Admirals.  Grafton has now broken all previous counts for butterflies and we still have 3 weeks to go.  Total butterflies counted 4987.  Count with adjustment for missing weeks 5047.  This is by far the best year ever for our 20th anniversary.

The work parties continue and the Coppice work has now started.  12 people attend this Wednesday. WWT roving volunteers are helping with  some Blackthorn cutting.
