A Day in the Woods

I haven't posted any updates recently but I have been down in the woods quite a lot.  I have continued with the coppicing but today I went down and did a few odd jobs.

Clearing the Storm Damage

Since the October storms, I haven't had much chance to clear up as I've been coppicing the chestnut.
Around 100 larch trees were blown down.  Now its time to start.

No pictures today.

At the end of last week some local pikeys decided to have a go at my neighbour's and my stuff in the woods.

They tried unsuccessfully to break into my neighbour's shed using a fence post to try and force the door. Then they moved into my woods and tried to steal my generator, I think it was too heavy for their weak arms to lift!  They managed to disable my atv in an attempt to steal it, by tearing out the ignition wires.  Then they stole some old chainsaws that I'd left in the wood store using my wheelbarrow to get them up to the road.  The chainsaws were crappy anyway so no loss!

The wildlife camera got some pictures of them so it will be interesting to see if the police have any luck tracing them - if they can be bothered to try.

ps Look out for Vauxhall Vectras lurking around your woodland.

Storm - 28th October

I went down to the woods in the afternoon to check up.
There were over 50 trees blown down so I've got my work cut out.

Badgers, and a Fox, on the Wildlife Camera

These photos are not that good - taken at night with the Wildlife Camera - 
but they are the first that I have of a badger in the woods.  
There's also a shot at the end of Mr Fox.  
Don't take any notice of the time and date stamp on the photos, 
I forgot to reset it properly when I changed the camera battery
