Thistle picking and volunteers

At Crane School disease prevention is paramount and we have a lot of protocols in place to protect the birds from any nasty pathogens which might do our birds harm. One of the most important of these preventative measures was to cover the outside exercise area with twelve inches of subsoil when crane school was being constructed thus, burying any disease causing organisms that may have been present in the topsoil. This has so far worked well although on the down side it has become a wonderful seedbed for thistles.
