Coppicing and Cameras

Tuesday, December 6th 2016

It’s frustrating when, with a blog to write, a camera is not to hand for the perfect moment… For me that moment today was when I startled a woodcock (the first I have EVER seen!) while cutting materials for our wreath making workshop tomorrow.

We also failed to get a photo of the Field Centre being made even more festive with the help of Irene and Colin – but isn’t the end result cheerful?!

We did however catch the main task of the day on camera - continuing with this year’s coppice block: Cutting, clearing, tree popping, burning and shredding!

Thank you to all who helped and a warm welcome to Nick who came to volunteer with us for the first time today!

We also had news today from Stacey (who's away from Foxglove for the winter, monitoring penguins on the British Antarctic Survey) - her first chicks have hatched!
