Walk on by

This afternoon we took a tour of three woodlands that are owned by Kirklees, but that we planted up years ago, and are in need of some TLC. Myself, Philip and Stephen were joined by Andy Wickham, who is Volunteer Coordinator for Kirklees, and liaises with the various voluntary groups carrying out woodland and parkland management.

With Andy's input we came up with action points for Guy Edge, Royd House Wood, and Woods Avenue Marsden. Once we have written these up we will send them to Andy who will get them approved and we can proceed with the various tasks.

Saw two deer at Woods Avenue. Brazen they were. Nonchalant.

Back for good

 This morning we were at Scammonden, again, but the monotony was lifted by the attendance of Steve!

Altogether we were: myself, Adrian, Jared, Alastair, Geoff, Steve and Philip.

Lots of plastic tubes and stakes were retrieved for re-use or disposal.

Steve was back!!

Back at Scammonden, reclaiming and collecting waste. We were: myself, Geoff, Adrian, Jess, Tanya, Hap, Dave, and Ben. 

We saw a Buzzard, which is not an eagle, but a bit like one.
