Speculation

Grid Ref SO 613 135

 

 

In the morning, the team met at Speculation car park where we were going to remove 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.

Our Forest Ranger provided us with protective goggles as the whiplash from cutting old wire can be hazardous.
