Mistletoe Survey

Not much time left to get your Mistletoe records in! If you’ve looked at the results map lately you will have seen that Tony has added records of traditional orchards, so that many of the pink and orange circles have a satisfying black blob in them. These, as I understand it, are not necessarily showing ancient orchards (though many of them will be old) but orchards managed in a traditional way with minimum intervention and traditional spacing of trees. The PTES website has more detail. https://ptes.org/campaigns/traditional-orchard-project/

We need more members in the area between Langport and Shepton Beauchamp; lots of black blobs there and no records!
