Stuck in the Mud

Friday, August 31st 2012

A small but eager team of volunteers arrived for the second of our Thursday volunteer days.  We spent the day working at the top of the woodland steps thinning out Ash that has grown up under the canopy of the Larch and Sitka Spruce.

With a chainsaw on the go, the volunteers processed the brash ready for the first bonfire of the autumn work season.

David removed a patch of Blackthorn, here he is with it cleared just after lunch.

Help Me! I'm Sinking!

The woodland floor was saturated after the heavy rain, and soon some of the areas we were working in became rather boggy - as Bethany quickly found out!  Luckily Garth was nearby to pull her out, minus one boot.

Thank you everyone for all your hard work transforming this area in the woodland.
