Nicholaston – flowers in the dunes

A lovely afternoon last week on Nicholaston Burrows looking at how to stop the trees coming out of the adjacent woodland and covering the dunes.

I’d forgotten just how beautiful these dunes are with their flowers out now such as burnet rose, bloody cranesbill, wild privet and on its way – evening primrose.  The lichens on the dunes are looking a little dry and crispy as we haven’t had much rain lately.

On the way back across the beach we bumped into Chris from Swansea Council’s Rights of Way team, who was – in his own words –  ‘checking his abutments’!   The bridge over Nicholaston Pill needs a bit of work to the base to help anchor it in the sand – Chris’ abutments!

Chris - after 'checking his abutments'!

I’ll be back to look at Nicholaston again very soon – its just so beautiful!
