Coppice nearly done!

Wednesday, February 23rd 2011

Today, in positively spring-like weather, fourteen volunteers worked all day on the Willow coppice.  This area is almost completed now and you will see a big difference as you drive in up our access road.  Jill was here all day, cutting, clearing and dragging.

John managed to take some pictures of the wildlife.  Notably this red frog….....

Thanks to everyone for all the hard work they put in today.
