Coppice clean up

Tuesday, May 8th 2018

Beautiful weather on the Reserve again today, although not the best weather for wearing the extra padding and protection provided by chainsaw trousers!

We made a start on tidying up the coppice block between the Scrapes and Lake today, managing to get through two huge piles of logs in need of moving. 

John and Eddie moved over 20 full wheelbarrow loads up to the quad bike trailer at the lay-by, while the rest of us processed the timber and carried out essential grass cutting works across the Reserve.

It was decided that we would stop for a break before lunch in order to test out the new canoe; (un)fortunately the vessel performed admirably with almost all crew members remaining relatively dry.

Meanwhile Colin set about filling the bird feeders, all of which are now depleting at a much reduced rate, before moving on to the edging on the front lawn of the Field Centre.
