I've finally managed to get out with the big tractor and mower this week. The Lodes way on Burwell Fen was looking lovely by the end of last Tuesday, it's probably grown a bit more now! It was a good day to be in the tractor too, with handy mounting blocks en route to stop and have a picnic lunch.
Ready, set, mow!
Picnic lunch anyone?

We had a work party in on Sunday, a large group from the Lion's Trust. We went up to Verralls to finish clearing some of the piles of cut down scrub that were moved around by the digger earlier in the year. They were very enthusiastic and got a good amount of work done while avoiding trampling the newly discovered Fen Violet, well done!

Nikki, Ruby, Pete and I went over to Wimpole Farm for our Safe Use and Storage for Veterinary Medicines training on Wednesday. Though the information we learnt was quite daunting we enjoyed being on the farm and getting to meet the animals, especially the piglets and the shire horses. Wish us luck for the assessment on Thursday!
