While at Moor Green Lake, Stuart and I cleared a culvert of leaves and branches. The water was very deep although it didn’t look it. We had to wear lifejackets and waders to do the job. By the end of the task it was clear how much difference we had made, as the water level had gone down 1.5 foot.
After tea break we cleared a load of blackthorn from the fire site of a previous task. Blackthorn is a very hard bush that is very hard to burn and move. With a bit of persistence we managed to move the blackthorn to form a habitat pile off the meadow.
