Wed 18th Jan 2012 - Mundsley Bog, Godshill (and Ryde).

This week we had two Green Gym groups working in different places. The smaller group were assisting Helen Butler of the Wight Squirrel Trust to plant some trees in Ryde, and the large group were at an old GG favourite Mundesley Bog. The weather was certainly a huge contrast to the lovely spring day last week at Corfe Camp. Typical January - drizzly, damp and misty, but undaunted the group set about tackling the removal of the bracken which has grown up yet again, and also some of a large willow in one corner of the site. There has recently been some work with a digger to raise the earth level in a couple of places, and it is certainly looking more like a bog than it has done for some time. We did leave some cover near the wooden boardwalk for the lizards, so when they have been basking in the sun on it (ho ho) they still have somewhere to hide from predators.

Many thanks to Carrie & Mark for the text and photographs this week.
