Mallards Pike

Grid Ref SO637095



The area to the northeast of Mallards Pike lakes is being cleared as part of the Butterfly Corridor scheme and we hope to see plants appearing where the trees once stood which would be of benefit to butterflies. We had an extra day here in beautiful weather and, as it was half term, quite a few children came out with us and were very good at keeping away from the large fires and the chainsaw!







As you can see, there was a lot of pine to load onto the fire.





We had the fire burning all day and managed to clear the ground.





Yes...i know...why is he not working and just looking!
