Another gorgeous day in the wood. Our deer stalkers gave us a much appreciated helping hand with ongoing tasks. The work party arrived at 8a.m and left 8 hard- working hours later, having cleared and cut up a large fallen birch; mended the fence it had fallen onto; adjusted the top gate and continued with some challenging holly clearance on a steep slope, followed by a big bonfire. They even had time to make a lovely sturdy bench for the top of the bluebell walk where we can sit and look across the valley to St.Leonard's Forest. Beautiful. Many thanks to Mark and his team.
