Ruxley Gravel Pits Nature Reserve – 7th February report

It was a cold crisp morning when ten volunteers ventured into the gravel pits. They worked in two groups cutting down saplings and small trees as well as fighting their way through the inevitable bramble. Because of all the exertion an early lunch was needed but it was too cold to sit about for long. With renewed energy they continued their battles with the vegetation. When they suddenly looked back they were amazed to see what was now a clearing. Then looking forward the other group could just be seen through the wooded area. Will the two groups be able to meet in the middle in the last session of the season on 28 February? It will be a challenge but these volunteers are determined to have a good go!
