Wed 23rd Sept 2015 - Sandown Meadows, Lake. GG # 603.

Sue's Photographs.

Right…..where do we start..????

Just a part of the cleared area…!

Parrot's Feather (another invasive non-native species!)

A Field Bug (species of Shield Bug).

In contrast to some of our recent GG sessions (they were somewhat "damp") the weather this week was a bright, autumnal day. Having parked up, it was a bit of a trek to the work site which was further along the road and through a rather boggy meadow. The task was to cut back the bramble and undergrowth that had overgrown a barbed-wire fence. Once the fencing had been revealed, the wire was removed allowing us to cut back right up to the edge of the stream that ran along the boundary. The fencing will eventually be replaced using new support posts as most of the originals had rotted away at the base.  The undergrowth material was cut away, collected up and then piled on a bonfire which made swift work of the disposal..! This session was well attended and the full extent of the southern boundary was cleared all ready for the new fencing to be erected. Well done to all those who attended and managed to achieve so much in just a few short hours.
For a couple of our GG members who's are feeling a bit under the weather at the moment, we all wish you speedy recoveries and hope you are tracking our work sessions on this blog! Hurry back soon….

Many thanks to Sue for the superb photographs this week.
