AUGUST 2014 - LATE SUMMER SURVEY
What a change in the weather! Temperatures have really dropped over the last week or
so. Oh well we have at least until 23rd September before the autumn equinox, so maybe a flourish of warmer weather is on its way! Well today was a really special day for me as it was the first time I’d used my new camera at the Ramada hotel grounds!
June 2014 - Late Spring Survey
What a lovely late spring morning, plenty of sunshine with some cloud too. My walk around the hotel grounds took in some highs and also a few lows. Let’s talk about the lows first. The meadow on the left hand side of the entrance drive, when you first turn in from Penns Lane had been cut, but unfortunately the grass cuttings had been left where they fell. If this meadow was to be a lawned area, then all would be fine. But however, the meadow has been designated as a wildflower meadow. This requires a different approach to its management.
March 2014 - Spring has sprung...
It’s the first day of spring at last! Although it’s not particularly spring-like weather as it’s an overcast sky and quite breezy. However it is now spring officially and there were plenty of signs around the grounds of the Ramada hotel last Thursday (2oth March).
SEPTEMBER 2013 - ECO OFFICER TERRY QUINN WRITES...
Hello again! What a busy summer I’ve had! But enough of that, let’s get down to the nitty gritty of what was about on the penultimate week of summer this year. The weather was cloudy but still warm, when I did the rounds on Thursday.
