A thankful return to normal British weather meant we were able to accomplish the mission without searing heat. Instead we basked in drizzle and grey skies whilst raking freshly cut grass. Dan, Ellie, and Rob helped the team at Lyncombe hill fields to rake back the grass to encourage wildflower growth on the hillside. This helps to encourage local wildlife as well as looking far nicer than just grass. In fact, it was so nice that multiple dogs took the chance to do their business in the freshly mown grass, whilst we raked, and transported grass onto the giant mound (not the type of wildlife we were trying to encourage). We had a far nicer time than this write up makes it sound and would be happy to go back and do it again!
