30.11.13 Working in Southover Churchyard

06 December 2013 | Posted in Wildlife Gardening , Frogs, Toads and Snakes

The churchyard at Southover Church has been managed by volunteers and is already a great place for wildlife. The churchyard offers patches of wildflowers which during our summer surveys were alive with butterflies, bees and other insects. Other areas of the church are kept short to ensure public access so overall the churchyard is a pleasant place for people and wildlife.

On Saturday a team of volunteers visited the churchyard and worked cutting back the long grass to assist the wildflowers in 2014.

Thanks to Steve, Karine, Martin, Chris, Caroline, Brian and Dave who came along to help out. There was even a red admiral basking in the sun - one of the last butterflies I'll be seeing in 2013. We're hoping there will be many more in the churchyard in 2014.
