Snow Deterrent To Keen Volunteers!

Wednesday, January 23rd 2013

Foxglove was shrouded in dense freezing fog first thing this morning.

Eight eager volunteers turned out to help in the coppice block on this dark and murky winter's day.

By mid-morning the fog had lifted and we were treated to a glorious sunshine!

After having so many wet days recently everyone decided it would be best to enjoy the sun and took a picnic lunch outside.

The work in the coppice block is now nearly finished, thanks to the hard work and effort of a dedicated team of volunteers.  Hopefully by the end of next week we will be able to cross this task off our job list.

At the end of day John walked back to the lake and took a picture from the same position.

The Robin came to inspect the work completed, looking around for any seeds or grubs to eat.
