Sunday 17 Dec 2017Scrub BashingCrecy Hill LWS, Tackley, Oxfordshire
Gallery picture
Another day's work on behalf of the local parish council to reclaim this small but beautifully sited reserve from invasive scrub. The management plan involves grazing the reserve with livestock - Dexters, apparently the smallest British breed of cattle. The hope is that they'll nibble the nascent scrub, but if they're to do their thing we need to open up some grazing areas for them by taking out the mature bramble and hawthorn.

See out the old year with some hedge-laying! Hedges make great habitat for all sorts of wildlife and for the final task of 2017 we're back in old Kidlington on the penultimate day of the year, a Saturday, to continue work on an extensive hedge-line that borders one of the pastures at Rectory Farm Fields. We'll pick up from where we left off earlier in the month. There will be more scrub and top growth to cut and burn, and we'll stake and bind the laid material to encourage dense re-growth in subsequent seasons.
