Wed 11th Dec 2013 - Munsley Bog, Godshill.

Approaching the GG work area this week was reminiscent of the Sherlock Holmes "The Hounds of the Baskervilles" film..... where they were on the misty moors. The vegetation was still covered with the overnight frost and the heat of the sun was burning it off in the form of  a low lying mist. We didn't get long to admire the vista as there was plenty of work to be done, so it was good that we had an excellent turnout. Previous GG visits to this site had successfully cut back the majority of the bracken and willow but time had taken it's toll and it was all hands to the tools to tackle the overgrown areas. One soon learns to keep moving while you work otherwise the chances are you will  sink into the marsh, perhaps even losing a wellie boot!
The whole area was looking much improved by the time the session finished so, all the GGmers that were off to the Christmas lunch, could justify having the plum pudding AND a mince pie...!

Please don't forget that next week's GG session is our Christmas Bash - so please bring along something  to help with the catering. Fancy dress and silly hats optional.... Ho...Ho....Ho.

Many thanks to Mark for the photographs this week.
