Thank you to everyone who attend our last working party on Sunday 16th October 2022. There were eleven people in attendance, and we once again made good progress in clearing rhododendron. The brash was left at the Dorset Way entrance and has now been shredded. We also cleared fallen leaves from the pathways to protect the surfaces.
Leaves and debris were also cleared from the ditches to avoid blockages. We are also making good progress heading south along the main ditch.
There was a great selection of fungi to spot (see photos below) and evidence of browsing deer on some of the tree regrowth.
Thank you to Graham for helping to set up again.
