Burning and Mowing

Thursday, August 27th 2015

Over the past few weeks we have been very busy cutting down overhanging branches from paths and clearing shrubs from our heathland. Everything that is cut ends up in a large pile near the entrance gate to the reserve. The pile has been getting bigger and bigger, so the task of today’s volunteers was to get rid of some of the pile. This involves having a large bonfire which is a task many of the volunteers particularly enjoy.

Also today, Keith, a local farmer, came with his tractor and mower to start cutting our Wildflower Meadow. We have deliberately left this as late in the season as we can to allow the flowers to drop their seeds. 

Thanks to everyone who came to help out today.
