More Coppice Work!

Tuesday, February 14th 2017

I know that it seems a repeat of every Tuesday that all we seem to do is work on the Coppice Block, but this is a big job that would be near impossible if it was not for the help and assistance from our merry band of volunteers.

The area we are working on will be more open to the sun, and will sprout fresh new Willow sprigs, and also allow more light to the ground to encourage wild flowers and ground feeding birds such as Green Woodpeckers, it is all about diversity.

As you can see from the above photo the undergrowth is thick, but the team thinned it out to create a more open area, one which will benefit more critters…. roll on Spring!

Thank you to all that helped.

Not all timber went on the fire only the brash; it is important to have habitat piles of wood created for insects, and fungi, as well as any other animal that may use these piles as a home.

We are holding our 16th AGM at Wathgill Camp this Thursday 16th February at 7pm..

Is it possible to put the report that is produced for the AGM about Foxglove in 2016 on line somewhere so we can all read it even if we don’t get to the actual meeting.
Thanks
