Good workday today and we took out a few large trees on the ridge of ballast. We were helped by a couple of lads who we found down on the greenway, so thanks if you are reading.
We had to pile the brash up because it was just way too wet to burn. This will create a great habitat for small mammals, insects and fungi.
We really need to get the ridge cleared because the old path is now turning into a bog. If we just keep pushing away at it we will get there. Ashlawn Cutting has the same flooding problem and their path navigates around it so we really need to do the same. The wet bits will then host some wonderful wildlife. Maybe when the ridge is cleared we can rake the mud out of the boggy bits to make proper ponds?
Thanks to all who made it today. Next workday will be next week. Will let you know what day and time tomorrow.
