My first day back after Christmas and New Year was very cold but beautiful. The volunteers and I were clearing and burning Willow at Lakeside Park to open up the edges of the lake.
Guilford Borough Council Ranger John had made a start on the clearance which we continued. With 15 pairs of hands we achived a lot with out any wet feet. The fire was slow getting going in the cold but by break, it was kicking out a lot of heat for which we were all grateful!
A few were lucky enough to see a kingfisher and a barn owl! Both of which I sadly missed. It was a lovely start to the new year thanks again to everyone.
