Towards the end of the day the ride has been considerably widened

This shows the start of fire building as we burn up the smaller brush leaving the larger logs in piles for the wildlife.

Orles Wood near The Bearse

Grid Ref SO573058

These are old woods with some very wide rides through them which we are keeping clear to encourage butterflies. A butterfly enthusiast reputedly counted sixteen different species of butterfly along the rides in the summer. During the day a fallow deer took time to stand and watch us and wild pheasants could be heard. The team got smothered in a hail storm during the day!
