The habitat value of Saron Graveyard is steadily increasing. Recent observations include:-
- Blue tits rearing a family of chicks in one of the nest boxes erected earlier this year.
- Rose bushes provided by the Council’s wildlife officer Rolf Brown are flowering for the first time.
- Signs of insect activity in the ‘bug box’ set up this spring.
- The wildflowers which made such a good display in part of the graveyard last summer have reseeded and fresh growth is beginning to appear.
- ‘Mr Toad’ (or should that be ‘Mrs’ ?) seems to be finding the graveyard to his/her liking.
- Ornamental trees planted last autumn and this spring are all establishing well.
Although much remains to be done we are pleased with this small step towards realising our vision of creating SARON MEMORIAL & WILDLIFE GARDEN.
