What a charming time of the year this is – Tadpoles changing into baby Frogs much to the delight of my Grandchildren. The Camel Trail going through its “purple phase” with foxgloves, Valerian and Campion featuring heavily this is all against a backdrop of Honeysuckle filling the early morning air with a heavy scent. It is very difficult not to wax lyrical about a Camel Trail experience when you have Goldfinches back flitting from bush to bush and to top all that in glorious sunshine if still a little nippy.
The Ranger has contacted me to say that he has provisional plans to give the Trail a light Summer cut from Wadebridge to Padstow starting the 17th of June for 5 days so please be on the lookout for machinery. You will also be pleased to know the post at the entrance to the Wadebridge section has been repaired so no stray vehicles can access the Trail.
Sorry to say there will be no report again next week I’m off on my travels again but in the meantime I do hope you take advantage of what will be a very quiet time on what is a glorious Trail at this time of the season.
