Here we are, minding our own business, when ....    this wave of smoke hits us

The other pile is this high                What an armful

Get me out of here                  A better way of collecting, but we need a fourth corner        

Step2. Approach the heap                 a final push on to the top

A watched fire never burns

Slader's Leigh August 2020 - Cutting the Grass    Photos by Judith Tranter

Mowing using a power sythe then raking it into rows - hard work for the five volunteers. We found a Great Green Bush cricket which was subsequently identified (from the photo) by Bristol Record Office; it was huge and gorgeous.
