Strimming, strimming, strimming…

This month The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, and a dedicated team of volunteers, have been strimming tracks through the molinia (and some rushes) at Rhos Glyn yr Helyg and Rhos Fullbrook. By doing this we are hoping to encourage the horses to graze and improve the habitat for the marsh fritillaries. However, this job was made even harder by the vegetation being wet- definitely an outdoor gym session!

We’ve also cleared some young trees out of a violet patch at Coed Maidie, cut back fallen trees at Rhos Glandenys and cleared some branches to help with balsam pulling at Rhos Glyn yr Helyg. There was also more strimming but this time of brambles!

It’s been a great month for autumn colours and we’ll be continuing with similar jobs in the next few months.

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales are very grateful to the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery who have made all this work possible.
