The final part of the project which saw all the work done last year to upgrade the Fife Coastal Path through our woodlands, and sow wildflowers at the Heritage Viewpoint, was completed on Saturday.  Part of the plan was to produce a leaflet for passers-by to take and r...

The bank below Crow Wood was sown with wildflower seeds in 2014.  The mix used for the main bank area below the path up to Ross Avenue was Scotia Seeds “Mavis Bank mix” and this contained a proportion of Cowslip seeds.  To begin with, as expected, not all the species i...

This morning saw a further stage in the work in Crow Wood to improve the biodiversity of wild flowers and all the other life that depends on them. 

It all started at the beginning of May 2018 when P7 pupils and teachers from Donibristle Primary cleared the ground smothe...

Some of you will remember the gun emplacements on the cliff above Bathing House Wood when they were partly covered by grass, ivy and other plants, and with hawthorn trees growing out of gaps in the concrete. 

Once the group discovered that this area was also in the land...
