A week too late!

Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles as they say; only last week Mark and his team were onsite taking down some damaged trees, and clearing a space of some poor quality self-seeded ones,ready for this years' planting. Now we have a tree down across the top of one of our ponds.


Never mind, I will trim the top to get it stable, and it will be left in situ where many have fallen before it, and it will then provide the wildlife with a bridge across the pond for around 8 years before it finally rots enough to fall into the pond. This is only a realtively young tree - the previous ones have been fully grown mature ones with a decent sized trunk. Still, the smaller birds will welcome the new perch, and no doubt the herons also will appreciate an idea spot to watch for the next snack from the pond.
