Clearing down the Cutting

The work party on Sunday morning (and well into the afternoon) was spent clearing and burning the brash.  As the day warmed up we were accompanied by much birdsong,  regular flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare, Yellowhammer singing their hearts out, Green and Great Spotted woodpecker, Raven over, Greenfinch, Song Thrush giving it plenty, Buzzard soaring as well as the more common species.
