GLAD TO BE BACK.

Over the last three months I`ve been working hard on an allotment at a local park that I`ve been given permission to turn into an organic wildlife garden. The allotment has been empty for two or three years and the weeds and brambles had taken over,the previous owner had used strips of carpet to suppress the weed trying to remove this made the job ten times harder. After clearing the weeds compost bins have been made and filled with aprox two tons of manure  barrowed 70yds along with a ton of mulch. A pond has been dug a bog area prepared a bug hotel built and a cabin erected to become a bird hide for photography,although a lot of work needs to be done hopefully most of the groundwork for a sucessful wildlife garden and bird feeding station are in place.I`ve shown a few photographs of the allotment before and after.

Good to hear from you again Martin.

Some hard graft here and the results at this stage are looking great not least of all the impressive hide.

Keep up the good work, and we can look forward to seeing your first records from your very own 'reserve' Martin.
