BIRD BOXES STOLEN, IVY RiPPED OFF TREES
FRIDAY 14TH. WITH JEAN, NEIL & ALICIA
A person not right in the head ripped off the lower Ivy from all the Plane trees with an iron bar (on Tuesday afternoon) & left it. Was also running around on the beds trampling the plants, and all the log piles had been strewn about. Jean was informed & came over and confronted him, but the damage had been done. He said he was tidying up!
2 Habi-Sabi bird boxes have gone from the trees, and an attempt has been made to rip off the Woodcrete ones as well but unsuccessful as they are fixed more securely. One Habi-Sabi bird box, opposite Chertsey House, wasn’t removed, maybe because it is over the railings & pavement & in full view.
We spent all afternoon clearing & bagging up the Ivy. Neil also rebuilt the log piles.
John Archer, the Tower Hamlets Biodiversity Officer, has given us 3 bare-rooted Buckthorn saplings, Will have to wait till next week to plant. #arnoldcircus #boundaryestate #shoreditch #vandalism #birdboxes #birdboxesstolen #gardensvandalised #opengardens
