The job was unusually straightforward and consisted of clearing birch saplings and seedlings from a long section of heather. This was well established but was being threatened by a prolific invasion of birch from nearby trees.
Loppers and saws were the preferred tools. The work proved rewarding in terms of visible results during the morning, but it was hard on the back! The weather stayed fine, with only a little drizzle but some sun as well.
|Plenty to go at here!|
|A good heather bank here.|
|Eleanor’s cake ... must be time for coffee....|
|Time to go. Backs ache, but look at all that heather.....|
