Forest Waters project

Grid Ref SO614120

 

We were working with the Forest Water Project today deep in the forest from Beechenhurst. This was in the Forest Research Project Area where there are many water channels. We were building leaky dams in order to slow down the streams during flooding days.

 

 

The research project was planted in about 1986 and there are numbered posts dotted about. This was to indicate the plantings of Oak and Elder which were sourced from various different origins. All the trees are thriving.

We found this old skeleton and we think it is a badger skeleton but we are not sure....
