Wed 27th Jan 2010 - Fort Victoria, Yarmouth.

Fort Victoria was our venue for this week, helping the Rangers Nic and Richard with some woodland work. The day was very crisp but dry, and because the working area was well inside the woodland and in a slight bowl, it was quite warm, especially when we all got cracking with our saws and loppers!. An area of trees, mostly sycamore and some quite large, had been cleared by a chainsaw, so our job was to cut up as much of the brash as possible and carry it over to the two! bonfires which were already burning merrily. The felling is part of the management in this area to bring more light into the woodland, encouraging the growth of wildflowers and the various type of wildlife that feed on them.

Many thanks to Carrie for the editorial and some pictures.....and to Eddie for the other pics.
