Edgehills GWT Reserve

Grid Ref SO662158

The team met at the far end of Edgehills GWT Reserve which is an area where the Exmoor ponies are often found although they were not there today. Our task was to continue with the heathland restoration which was to cut and burn the small birch over a very large area.

The winter weather was not kind to us today! Heavy rain and a strong wind but we all had our waterproofs on and soldiered on!

 

A break during the morning with the area behind the team members already cleared..

 

Enormous fires of the burnt scrub.

 

 

A soggy lunchtime!
