Oakenhill

Grid Ref SO 6289 0818

It was a beautiful day for our large team. We went to Oakenhill woods where a small stream meandered down the hill. Quite a few trees had been felled along the stream so our task was to pile all the branches into habitat heaps and to use the logs to create leaky dams.

The team are setting out down the hill to separate into small groups for the work.

A Goshawk was seen flying over the woods to the left of the picture.

This shows the extent of one of the areas we cleared. The little stream is well hidden underneath all the brush.

Signs of the leaky dams.

We must have built quite a few of them - about 20 yards apart down the stream.
