Conservation Walk June 14

Some warm early summer weather was enjoyed by the volunteer litter pickers at Warleigh Point on 8th June. 

The reserve remains reasonable tidy, apart from the debris from a barbecue at one point.  Sadly the diners had also seen fit to burn some nearby gorse bushes.  In all we collected three large bags of rubbish, with the shoreline yielding most of the items.  The spring flowers are now over, but the summer flowers are beginning to appear, in particular Common Cow-wheat, an ancient woodland indicator that it’s not too surprising to find at this special spot. Within half an hour of us finishing the walk, the heavens opened.  That we remained dry during our efforts was something we, as Humanists, could only claim as good luck, rather than non-existent deities smiling on our good deed.
