Wed 25th July 2018 - Lynch Copse, Newchurch. GG # 745.

This week was our final Himalayan Balsam pulling session of 2018....yay...! We all met up in the carpark by the school then headed off on something of a route march down to the work site. It didn't really help that it was on one of the hottest days of this year but.... we eventually arrived and started work on a rather large clump of HB. Had it just been that we had to pull the head high plants up, then that would have been easy - which is never the GG way, we had to contend with the heat, an electric fence, stinging nettles and a well hidden deep ditch...! Oh well...might as well end the HB pulling season on a high :-) In spite of the perils, we did make good progress at eliminating all we could find so perhaps there will be a few less to pull next year..?  (we are ever hopeful..) We now just have the last of the ragwort sessions and that will be the PPP over for another year, hooray!

A note from Alison.

 I received my copy of the HIWWT magazine and noted we had a mention. Thought you might be interested if you hadn’t seen it.

Many thanks to Tony and Mark for taking the photographs this week and to Alison for her contribution.
