Boggy Patch Update
Mail from Ian this morning:
“Checked boggy area yesterday, coming on well and no more interference.”
This is excellent news. While it may look like nothing more than a muddy patch at the moment, the flora and fauna that inhabit boggy patches will soon move in. We are hoping for iris and marsh marigolds, frogs and caddis fly larvae. If we get the flora right, the water voles will graze there on sedge and rush leaves.
Here’s a really cute video of water voles to be going on with.
