Hot dry weather leads to worry for the parkland. After weeks of this beautiful sunny weather and no rain our parkland is starting to look like the plains of Africa. The grass has dried up causing concern for the farmers as with no grass growing the cattle grazing on the park are running out of food. This means the farmers are already having to dip into winter food stocks.
This sunshine is beautiful but here at Godinton we could do with a little bit of rain to help the grass and plants recover.
