Digging for Victory

'The Boys', busy deepening our winter scrape  - Sustead Common


We had a short-notice work-party at Sustead Common yesterday, to make a start on deepening the winter scrape so that, in an average summer, it might retain some water. This would encourage more biodiversity and, hopefully, be 'victorious' in providing a place for our expanding population of dragonflies to breed. We also installed some silt traps in the field drain which supplies the scrape, reducing the amount of sediment eventually entering the Gur Beck and, subsequently the River Bure. Helping things along was the constant song of a near-by Yellowhammer.
