Two Pines Fen, 21st October 2020
Following lockdown due to Covid-19, we had been unable to return to Two Pines Fen SSSI in the spring to do a cut and rake ahead of orchid flowering season. This Site of Special Scientific Interest is home to 12 species of orchid. It is flanked by two different golf courses and we are only able to safely work there when one of the holes is closed. The Golf Course had kindly arranged to closed a hole on the Green Course and moved the tee on the Red Course so that we could work without fear of being hit by golf balls. The only problem was the weather! It rained and rained practically all day!
