Pulling (and other pursuits)

Saturday, February 4th 2017

Today saw the February instalment of our Winter Worky Days. The weather was clear and relatively mild; this was just as well given that two brave souls spent the morning in waders pulling Phragmites out of the Scrapes!

Elsewhere, work continued on this year’s coppice block.

We also continued coppicing in the Hazel Avenue, which we started last month.

Bob and Ruth bagged bird food…

…and Ruth got new displays sorted for the Field Centre…

…accompanied by Bella.

And of course we were all fuelled through the day by the customary curry, tea and wonderful homemade cakes!

Thank you very much to all who helped today, lots of good progress was made. Do let us know if you would like to come for the next one on Saturday 4th March!
