Foxes Bridge and Flaxley Wood White Butterfly surveys

 

The team were split up as some of them went to Flaxley Woods to do a wildlife survey and the others went to Foxes Bridge to remove old fencing wire.


We had another day removing redundant fencing. Everyone worked really hard on a beautiful day. This is the team with about half of the wire

At the end of the day, another trailer full of the old wire!
