Arrival with equipment

Sunday 17th Feb 2013 - a perfect sunny day. Volunteers from FOCH and Butterfly Conservation (W.Mids) and Herefordshire Nature Trust joined together to improve the habitat for the Pearl Bordered Fritillary Butterfly. About 30 or 40 in all including about 10 with brushcutters and the rest of us with rakes, we spent morning and afternoon clearing areas of the bracken so that the orchid the butterflies like to breed upon, had a better chance to see the light of day and grow.
