Wrong kind of weather?

No. 34 - track wild animals.  From 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4.

Snow hasn’t been stopping everything from getting out and about, complete one of our 50 things activities to track wild animals by following their prints in the snow.  We saw these tracks on a log across a river whilst we were out fencing and making our own tracks.

Building fences, making tracks.

This was to be the perfect time for us to undertake our replanting of the area felled last year to control the spread of disease in larch trees.  We had planned visits from Gower volunteers and a local health group to help us.  This all unfortunately fell whilst the site was under a foot of snow.  So now we are waiting for it to clear and hopefully we’ll get them in before Spring.

We are also hoping to get on with surfacing the tracks in the woods, again, we are just waiting for the weather, this time to offer us some nice hard ground.

So with the weather holding us up, our work list is growing – all the more need for recruiting a new full time volunteer to the woods team, click here for more information.

That’s all for now,
The woods team.
