Speculation

Grid Ref SO 613 135

 

 

In the morning, the team met at Speculation car park to continue removing very old and damaged fencing alongside a track. Damaged fencing can cause a real problem for wildlife especially deer if they get their legs caught in it.

Alongside the track, this old tree had a large hole high up and we were told that, when the Pine Martens had kits they were carried one-by-one to this hole from their original nesting box by their mother. It is quite a way from their original box but the Pine Martens obviously preferred it!

The large pile of old fencing is removed and taken for recycling to the Forestry depot.
