Rufford and Bestwood springing into life

Currently at both Country Parks signs of Spring are all around us. Daffodils along Rufford's main drive again flowered early, Brimstone and Comma butterflies were spotted yesterday in the midday sunshine and the first frogspawn was seen in a small pond at Bestwood.

Alongside all the signs of Spring work has been relentless as usual, clearing up windblown trees after Storm Doris hit and making the Parks safe was priority. Volunteer groups at Rufford helped with this as well as reprofiling an area which will eventually be an artificial Kingfisher bank......pics to follow.

The Volunteer groups at Bestwood have also been very busy and have spent a great deal of time creating a fantastic hedge which they have laid, staked and bound.
