Wed 15th Jan 2020 - Bouldnor Forest, Yarmouth. GG # 816.

The sight that greeted us on arrival....

and NO...we didn't cut it all up with a bow saw..!

A much improved weather situation after we (eventually)
started work.

We were originally scheduled to be working at Sandown Meadows this week, but due to the extreme rainfall experienced recently, it decided prudent that we should be diverted to Bouldnor Forest. Having had overnight weather warnings for heavy rain and high winds, the drive to the session was "interesting" with hedge to hedge flooding on some parts of the main road. Turning off along the forest track, we didn't get very far before being stopped by rather large tree blocking our progress...! Fortunately, the rangers had their chainsaws handy and they made a much quicker job of it than we could have done with our trusty bow saws..! Having said that, we didn't get to the car park until almost 10:45 so it was decided to have an early tea break before heading out to start cutting some gorse and getting a fire going. As can be seen in the photograph above, the weather improved dramatically with the grey leaden sky giving way to patches of blue and some sunshine. Not a well attended session but a huge WELL DONE to those who battled through 👍

Many thanks to Mark for contributing the photographs.
