Moaning about the weather seems to be a constant theme this year – and not without good reason. Yesterday, at Old Sleningford Farm, there were only four volunteers (including my daughter), and we were all buttoned up in several layers.
However, countryside and rain go very well together I think, especially in any kind of wood or forest. And another reason for several people being elsewhere was the Tour de Yorkshire (cycling race).
The forest is starting to come alive again. It seems to be taking a long time, but as we are unable to do the workday at the beginning of June we should see a massive difference next time we go.
