I went out with Ben, Jenny and the Volunteers to coppice some gorse and bramble on the access ramps by the Blackwater Valley Path at the Aqueduct, in Aldershot. To start with we used shears to cut down the straggly bramble and make it easier to move. After we used rakes, shovels and pitchforks to drag the bramble away, piling it up in gaps, to create a better habitat. We also coppiced the leggy gorse and hazel to create a denser scrub for nesting birds. Once we completed this work, the ramps to the aqueduct looked more inviting for visitors, and we created a better area for wildlife.
