Wet and Wild Weather does not deter the “Birds and Bees” event


September 14th, a soggy Sunday morning, local birding expert Patty O’Neill led a bird walk through the estate, focusing on areas she has seen activity over the past year of monitoring the estate’s bird population. Due to the rain, there was not much bird activity, but the tough group that braved the bad weather had a tour of the estate and Erica Max, our landscape supervisor, filled them in about the history of the areas visited.


Later in the morning, Beekeeper Scott Harris discussed his experience beekeeping at the Wakefield Estate. He described the growth of the bee hive over the past 5 months, demonstrated a brief hive inspection and talked about next steps in preparing the hive for the winter. The stalwart participants were rewarded with a take-home sample of honey harvested from Scott’s Wakefield Estate hive.
