CROW (Conserve Reading on Wednesdays)
Wednesday, 20th December 2017
Paices Wood Country Park, Aldermaston ~ Scrub clearance

The first of our Christmas tasks, clearing birch and willow scrub from part of the outer edge of the heathland area of the site.

With potatoes to be baked for lunch, the fire had priority.

The area tends to be wet with shallow pools, .....

..... no surprise then that we encountered a number of frogs of various sizes.

Lunch is served!

A few larger trees were also felled.
