Awres Glow GWT Reserve

Grid Ref SO 6362 0926

We met opposite Linear Park and drove throught the woods to the GWT Reserve which is near to the reserve we visited on the 23 January.

This is a relatively new Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust reserve and it has had the Exmoor ponies in it. There was a large team of us so we did do a lot of clearing - mostly small birch and gorse. The conifers were left to grow.



This was our large team of workers - some of them have been with us for years but there are a few new members!

This shows part of the large area we had cleared with some stumps painted blue with stump killer to inhibit re-growth.
