Wed 4th Nov 2009 - Munsley Bog.



Mundsley Bog is an old favourite, which we have worked on every year for the last six years. The site is in the care of Island 2000 Trust, and the overall aim is to restore the natural bog. Nearly 40 volunteers turned up on a bright and gloriously sunny day, and certainly had plenty to do. We last visited this site earlier in the year, but it was amazing to see how it had regenerated in such a short time, although perhaps not unexpected due to the excellent growing conditions through the Spring and Summer months. Tasks were - to clear dead bracken; cut down the willow; build a dead hedge at the top of the site using the cut willow; and build a small dam over one of the ditches to encourage the water level to spread across the bog.
