Mowing September 2009

This year we bought a new Kawasaki petrol-engined strimmer. We tried out cutting the hay in the meadow area with this, though it did not get done until late September.

Mammal Trapping 2009

Photographs by: Peter Land

We set traps for small mammals on several evenings in August.

Two types of trap were tried, well stocked with bedding and food – including grass, hazelnuts and blackberries from the site. These included transparent plastic and aluminium boxes, with trap doors with a simple trip mechanism.
