The team split in two. Some members removed the birch and gorse from a steep south facing bank to expose the underlying earth and rock as this area is a good habitat for the Woodwhite butterfly and this will clear the bank for them to breed next year. Other members were felling large trees growing near the stream in a boggy area to open it up for more heathland type plants.
