The new year marks the start of preparations for the 2024 season and as usual there is lots to do! Thankfully the rain has cleared and this week we have seen more seasonal weather, including frosts. So it was on with the base layers before setting off to work and the first job was to clear the leaves which have fallen over the Christmas break. Being careful not to disturb those leaves where hedgehogs or even some of our toads might be resting, we still filled several sacks.
