Tidying the Green Route

Thursday, June 21st 2018

The group have achieved a great deal during our tidying of the Green Route today. We started the morning with boardwalk repairs and removing vegetation overhanging the paths.

It wasn't long before most of the group moved on to woodland management of areas previously planted as mixed conifer/broadleaved woodland; removing large quantities of brambles and gorse, whilst also marveling at the number of self-seeded Rowan that are thriving in the area.

Meanwhile, Peter was busy strimming paths throughout most of the day, with yet more to do next week!

Another group got a huge amount done at the bridge by the Willow Spiling; so much so that you can now see the Willow Spiling from the path and bridge!

All in all, a very productive day in the woods! 

Some of the bird ringing team have started their long journey north to Cape Wrath to ring sea birds.  We hope that the birds have had a good breeding season and that this is reflected in the ringing results.
