Now up to date on the Panorama Trail:

Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, stands here and there by the wayside.

Swallow nesting aids

Swallows are annual visitors to our golf and work yard area. Therefore, it is obvious to provide new nesting aids for them.

One of their predators is the marten, for whom it would be easy to threaten the swallows from the beams. Five swallow nesting boxes were installed on the west side of the workshop, under a crossbeam. With Plexiglas protection, so that the predators don't stand a chance.
