Its been a busy few weeks in the woods for some local volunteers on the Lizard, with activities ranging from bird box building to coppicing and perhaps more importantly plenty of tea and coffee drinking.
To get over the Christmas and New year eating and drinking spree, a group of volunteers came down to Poltesco to help build some bird boxes and put them up around the woods. No residents yet, but am keeping my eye on them. Also we have been doing some woodland management in some beautiful places including Tremayne woods and Tregithy, both on the banks of the Helford, great places to come and enjoy the scenery and in particular the wading birds at low tide.
Next up on the events list is the Half term mega scrub bash, on Saturday February 19th. Come along and help us manage the cliffs at Predannack for those Lizard plant rarities that we all love. Open to anyone wanting to come, there will be cutting and burning of scrub, so bring some food to cook on the fire and I'll put the brew on! Meet at Predannack Wollas National Trust car park (SW 696 165) at 1000hrs. Event will finish at approximately 1530hrs.
