As instructed by site manager, Graham (from Natural England, the organisation who oversee the site), our task this week was coppicing an area of woods to the edge of the fen. Good progress was made and the cold was kept at bay except perhaps for some cold feet with the lack of insulation provided by our wellington boots! Hopefully our next visit to the fen will be a little less chilly.
