A Mixed Day

Thursday, January 28th 2016

Setting off with our small group of Thursday volunteers, leaving Tony and Mike behind in the workshop to carry on with mending owl boxes, the rest of us headed out to the woods and carried on burning the brash from Tuesday. We did this until lunchtime when the wind got up a bit too much and we had to call it a day. As there is a lot of dry wood on the forest floor we made the fire safe again by extinguishing it with water.

After lunch it was time for a spot of path maintenance, some of the edging along part of the yellow route not far from the small hide had rotted away, so we removed and replaced it and put in place new stakes to hold it together.

Thank you to everyone who came out today, your skills and hard work as always are appreciated.
