I met India from The Woodland Trust at a local shop for a hot chocolate, before driving up to Bramble Bank Wood, it was only 3 degrees in the woodland. We spent the 1st part of the morning walking around the accessible areas of the woodland identifying trees and mapping the area.
As the brambles had died back we managed to reach areas I had not been to before and found an active Badger Set, I have since reported it to the Badger Trust and invited members to visit our woodland.
Late morning we starting planning the restoration project, each woodland is different Bramble Bank Wood has a thick layer of leaf litter that supports various fungus’s and animal life this needs to be preserved. India provided me with some additional reading and research to complete before we could think about planning trees.
