Week 22

It feels like spring is finally on its way after a long and wet winter. On Monday I was at Hill End, we had a meeting about centenary projects and I helped to clear fence lines around the site before the start of the nesting season. On Tuesday I was at Wytham, I did the weather station, then worked with Rob from Hill End to do some sweet chestnut coppicing with a school group. They will be using this material to build a bush craft shelter in their new school grounds. I was surprised at how engaged and well behaved they were, and hopefully this was an experience that will stay with them for a while. On Wednesday and Thursday I had forest school training, Thursday was especially good as we did a big fry up on open fires. On Friday I worked with our new volunteer to do some more hedge laying. The trees are really big but we are making some progress with it.
