On Thursday 22nd September the WWIG volunteers were joined by a mixture of civilian and military personnel from Montgomery Houses to work in Rushmoor Bottom, Duke’s Wood, Wellesley Woodlands. Together they tackled invasive laurel around the back of the Wellington Statue as Paul strimmed back the road edges to help with sight lines.
No laurel was left undefeated as the group took to the challenge with gusto, helped out by our more experienced WWIG volunteers. The group made a noticeable difference to the light coming into the woodland where they worked.
Whilst the group were busy I noticed some woodland dwellers who come out at this time of the year, taking advantage of an old tree stump and a rotting pile of woodchippings.
The top two, grey ones are Inkcaps and the bottom, browner one is a bracket fungus. If you think you know which sort, leave a comment!
A big thank you to everyone who came out and helped us out.
