Friends of Ham Lands in action

Friends of Ham Lands (FoHL) have started working in Ham Lands to improve wildlife habitats, particularly for butterflies, on the morning of the second Saturday of each month. If you walk along one of the main paths through Ham Lands South you will see piles of cut vegetation as a sign that work has been done in that area.

In February they worked in this section clearing the encroaching scrub to protect the grassland. They also did some work on the path leading out of the middle of the picture both to make it more passable and also to clear more scrub from the grass verges.

This was not meant to be a little pick but the cans and bottles in the areas that they were working in were removed. It was a significant collection from quite a small area. Ham Lands is much better without it.
