STOP! Hammer time

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Thursday, 7 April 2011 18:03

Mark Monk-Terry and I have been following in the footsteps of the late, great botanist Francis Rose by extending the 100 m monitoring grid that he and Alf Simpson set up at Ebernoe Common in the early 1980s. We are extending it into the area known as Butcherlands so we can monitor, amongst other things, the rate of regeneration of oak and other woody plants. It was very hot out there. I started the bird survey there too this morning and I was too hot by 8.00 am! I picked up four Nightingales, two Whitethroats, two Reed Buntings and a Yellowhammer. It's been a long old day and I am pretty tired and frazzled so I am going to keep this blog a brief one.
