Chesworth Farm

Chesworth Farm
A beautiful evening on the Farm doing the final preparation for the Christmas Wreath Making event which the Friends of Chesworth Farm are running tomorrow involved coppicing lots of bendy willow whips, collecting seasonal vegetation such as pine cones and Ivy leaves as well as stocking up with logs and kindling to ensure the attendees aren't too chilly whilst making their own wreaths.

After dropping off the supplies to the Volunteer Centre, Sam and I had a quick mooch round the Farm to check the animals and also to inspect a reported blocked stream which was as a consequence was flooding the path. Lots of birds were whizzing around the hedges in preparation for a cold night, trying to find the best roost spot. A summary of the species noted is below:

Blackbird 3, Magpie 12, Chaffinch 1, Blue Tit 1, Herring Gull 40+, Robin 3, Song Thrush 1, Woodpigeon 4, Jackdaw 10+,
