Meadows at Bells Mills and Bogs Mill - Cut and ready for winter

Two of our biodiversity boost sites along the river have had there annual cut - thanks to many hours of volunteer labour. A number of years ago we began to manage two meadows along the river, cutting and removing rank vegetation and planting them up with many hundreds of wildflower plugs. Ever since we have had to wade in in autumn and clear the summers growth - essentially making hay. This year we are grateful to our Hit Squad and volunteers from Heineken UK and Aberdeen Asset Management for all their hard work cutting and removing mountains of vegetation - each year the meadows seem to get more beautiful with a greater diversity of wildflower on show. Great Job!!
