Work party this coming Tuesday FLASHES

We will be working at the FLASHES this Tuesday so can everyone meet at the Sailing pool car park at 9am or at the Flashes if you are coming later.
Work :
We will be pruning the west hedge and blackthorn to south of hide. This is to aid viewing of the hedgerow, rejuvenate it and increase its longevity. As with many other Hawthorn at the Flashes they are getting old are in desperate need of management before they die and fall over as we have recently witnessed.
The whole fox fence will be checked and either repaired or earmarked on a later visit.
Remove bramble and scrub from the southern section of fox fence this will damage the fence and make it easy for fox incursions.
Also we will be carrying out a controlled snipe/ jack snipe count.
John
Wellies would be best.

Are you confident of your ID - sure it wasn't a wallaby?
