Collecting willow seeds for the Millennium Seed Project (KEW) at Torrs Warren this week. A very warm day and a very successful one with our 3 target species for this year all achieved at once.
Just to prove that when collecting seed for the National Tree Seed Project last year, that we left enough seed for the birds and other wildlife.
Here are a couple of photos of stashes of crab apple and hawthorn seed beneath trees which we collected seed from.
These are undoubtedly collected and eaten by voles and wood mice.
