Practical Work – Preparing Chalet Wood


We spent a lovely morning when we should have been clearing brambles watching Richard and his team expertly placing these huge and heavy oak logs along the side of the main path in the bluebell Wood. Perfect for sitting and balancing on! The machine was too big to get in the middle of the wood while the ground is so wet and the bluebells in full growth so they will come back after the bluebells are over, probably next Autumn, with another load of logs.

Scrub clearance in the Exchange Lands


004

 

A bright, sunny morning with a blustery wind saw a dozen Wren volunteers clearing bramble scrub in the Exchange Lands, between the River Roding and the City of London Cemetery. We do this activity every year to maintain the balance between grassland and scrub in the area. Both habitats are important habitats for insects and birds, but left unmanaged the whole area would become covered with brambles and we would lose the grassland wildflowers, several butterfly and moth species and birds such as Green Woodpecker. This was the last weekend practical work of the winter; birds are now starting to nest and we want to avoid disturbance.
