Bracken bashing today at Oakenhill Nature Reserve. We did get a sprinkling of rain but, at least, it was not a heavy downpour!

The bracken was already quite high and we used scythes to cut it down.

During our break we are actually sat in quite a large area which had been totally churned over by the feral boar. We are frequently seeing large boar areas like this lately.

The cut bracken is left on the ground and we cleared a large area down the hill.
