MCT Activities in May & June 2017

We’ve seen lots of butterflies and bees on site this year, especially Yellow Brimstones, Large Whites, Commas, Peacocks, Red Admirals, Orange Tips and Holly Blues and Small Blues.  You can see some photos on our Facebook Page.

We hold volunteer sessions on Sunday afternoons, starting at 14.00.  Do come and join us for an hour or two if you’d like to help keep Mayfields north of Nelsons Lane beautiful.

We checked for the regrowth of Japanese Knotweed for CYC at the end of the first week in May where we have been trying to eradicate it from the site.  It was encouraging that we only found a solitary small plant in the area where growth was greatest last summer, and that has now been given an initial treatment, as photos below show.
