Wed 11th Jan 2012 - Corf Camp, Shalfleet.

Only the second GG session of the new year and we are already off to pastures new! Almost anyone who as been a Boy Scout on the Island would have no problems finding their way to the new site this week as it was at the Scout Camp, Shalfleet. This wonderful site is on the eastern side of Newtown Creek and is a wildlife paradise. As it is designated an area of special scientific interest, the tasks we could undertake were suitably restricted so as not to disturb the area or wildlife. A large contingent of GG (possibly 40+) were soon deployed around the footpath areas, lightly trimming back the undergrowth to allow safe access, cleaning out ditches and generally giving the place an early "spring clean". It was an absolute joy to walk down to the creekside and see the numerous birds then to try and find your way back to the central area via the various pathways. The weather was a pleasant 12C with long sunny periods - just how much longer can this mild weather hold on this winter? (I am now taking bets on how deep the snow will be next Wednesday.....!!!)
Many thanks to Carrie for the photographs this week.
