Countryside Management Services - 23/08/2016
The Countryside Management Services held their annual social event for their Practical Conservation Volunteers at the Woodhall Estate on Tuesday 16th August.

​Between them the volunteers attend in excess of 150 work parties per year, giving more than 13,000 hours of their time to improve Hertfordshire’s green spaces and public rights of way.

 The visit to Woodhall was an opportunity for them to hear about the history of the landscape, review river restoration projects on the Beane and spend time admiring the veteran oak and hornbeam trees in the Park.  After much walking and talking, the hog roast lunch was a great way to round off the morning.

Outdoor Activity Day - 19/07/2016

 

At the end of the summer term Stapleford Primary School spent the day at Woodhall, enjoying the open space that the woodlands and fields have to offer.
 
With great enthusiasm they embarked upon a vast range of outdoor activities including bark rubbing, sketching, den building and mini beast hunting in the woodlands, and searched for crickets and butterflies in the meadows.  They also made some creative art features using natural materials.
 
This type of supervised outdoor learning activity is something we are always very keen to encourage at Woodhall.

Wild Flower Areas - 14/07/2016

 

Some of the less productive areas of farmland have been planted with wild flower and grass mixes which are now awash with colour.  Plants such as knapweed, chicory, St Johns wort, scabious and cranesbill provide a valuable environment for predatory insects to breed and overwinter, feeding on pests such as aphids which can damage crops.
                                                                                               
The earlier flowers in this area, such as clovers, vetches and campions are a great attraction to bees and in early May were smothered in soldier beetles, ladybird eggs and newly hatched larvae.  These beneficial insects should always be encouraged to reduce pest aphid species such as flea beetle, which can cause devastating damage to oil seed rape plants.
