OPAL hedge survey and wildflower meadow creation 30th May 2015

We headed off to sunny Maker heights in South East Cornwall, just look at that sky!

 Today we were carrying out an OPAL hedge survey and completing our area of wild flower meadow.

Time to wake the hedge up! Shake shake shake!

Finding out what we have caught in our trays!
