Volunteer Day with the Flutter By Project at Potteric Carr

It started off as a very chilly day, but not to be disheartened by a bit of snow we headed off to Potteric Carr Nature Reserve (Yorkshire Wildlife Trust) for a day of helping out with the soon-to-be-opened Butterfly Garden (for the Flutter By Project).  I don’t think any of us would’ve imagined that the ground would be covered in snow after the Vernal Equinox!

We collected branches to saw down to use as edging to the butterfly shape below (which will be planted with flowers to attract butterflies and this had been planned for the day, but as you can see from the gallery above, it wasn’t the weather for planting!

The Flutter By space is due to be ‘opened’ on the 29th March – although whether there will be the weather for it to be finished in time remains to be seen!  Regardless of this, we hope we’ll be able to return to volunteer at the project when the weather warms up a bit!
