A group of Welsh Baccalaureate volunteers helped to clean up the Nant Fawr area from Cardiff High to Rhydypenau Rd on Sunday, January 14th.
The dumping of plastic Charity collection bags is still an irritation, as is the inability to put bottles and cans in the bins nearby. Apart from that, there is some dumping of waste but the overall cleanliness of the site is good. Thank you to the majority of users that help us to keep the Nant Fawr area so pleasant to use.
Choose a good place to watch any time from27-29 January 2018.
Relax and watch the birds for an hour.
Count the maximum number of each species you see at any one time. For example, if you see a group of three house sparrows together and later another two, and after that another one, the number to submit is three. That way, it’s less likely you’ll double-count the same birds.

Despite the drizzle, 22 Friends and Welsh Baccalaureate pupils turned up at the workday.
One group tackled Rhydypenau meadows; all 13 fruit trees in the orchard are doing well and will benefit from being freed from the brambles and bracken.
The other group tackled the path and it was left distinctly wider when they finished.
It was also an opportunity to share some welsh cakes and drinks (mulled wine for the older workers!),
and to thank Kevin,our Ranger, for his hard work and patience during this year. We have many plans for next year but will take a well earned break until the New Year.
Thank you to all those who have supported the Friends this year and congratulatiions to the pupils who have now completed their Community Volunteering hours.
