Today we're clearing scrub from the fen.

Gallery picture
Brambles and willow/hazel/birch regrowth is taking over in some areas...

Gallery picture
...and shading out the fenland species.

Gallery picture
We're also removing the brambles which have engulfed the fence.

Lunchtime

Gallery picture
The fence line is now clear of brambles...

Gallery picture
...and we concentrate on clearing the fen.

Gallery picture
Towards the end of the day most of the bramble has gone...

Gallery picture
...and the hazel/willow/birch has been coppiced.

Gallery picture
Final clear up...

Gallery picture
...as we stack most of the brash well away from the fen, wedged behind trees on the woodland slope.

Gallery picture
Probably Scarlet Elf Cup (Sarcoscypha austriaca or coccinea)

Gallery picture
This part of the fen is now much clearer...

Gallery picture
...and the fenland plants will be able to flourish.
