Preparing for New Fence Lines

Tuesday, September 12th 2017

Wow, what a day! With a big team of Tuesday practical volunteers in we got loads done! Feeders were filled, habitat boxes got ready, some technical jobs done and repairs made to worn mesh on some of the boardwalks.

However the main task of the day was continuing with work on the heath: Encroaching trees were removed along where the new fence lines will be going...

…and overhanging trees pruned back.

In the meantime the team from Len Porter continued their installation…

…for a short time watched by some of the volunteers who were interested to see how the tracked vehicle and post driver worked!

Huge thanks to all who came and helped today. We have got an enormous amount done and it would not have been possible without you.
