Rhyd-y-groes stream clearing and Tan-y-Foel Nature walk

On Bank Holiday Sunday 14 Parchu Pentir Respect members met at the end of Rhyd-y-Groes to remove hemlock from the stream. Some 70 metres were cleared and Iwan took two big builder’s bags to Moel-y-Ci for composting. Hopefully the locals will keep their feet and houses dry. Some tea and cake from Anwen and Carolien finished the task off nicely.

A Nature Walk up to Tan-y-Foel’s pond followed the stream clearing. Steve and Linda identified a variety of birds, including some feral greylag geese (not ducks Carolien!), seen flying in one of the pictures. The children found tadpoles, the offspring of the toads we moved earlier in the year no doubt. After a pleasant stroll we had a lovely lunch with home made soup and salad at Ken and Evelyn’s. Thank you very much! An excellent way to end another successful Parchu Pentir Respect activity.
