CROW (Conserve Reading on Wednesdays)
Wednesday, 6th December 2017
Wokefield Common ~ Birch clearance

Parts of the common which were once heathland have been overrun by birch. Over the last ten years CROW has been helping clear the birch allowing the heather and associated wildlife to re-establish.

Selecting birch for a besom

Thanks to the bonfire the group was able to enjoy some Vivaldi for lunch.

Regenerating heather

Plenty of fungi were to be seen of which this was one of the more unusual.

Time to relax as the task draws to a close.
