Welly Free Ceredigion

Another month where wellies were not a necessity! How lovely, though I’m sure the ground has appreciated the few showers we have had recently.
This month we have been finishing off the winter works before the birds start nesting so we spent a day thinning in Pant Da and another in Old Warren Hill taking out some rogue sycamores and a few other tasks. We ate our lunch sat on the tree stumps in the newly cleared areas with the sun shining down on us. We eagerly await the bluebell display.

The rest of the work days were spent clearing scrub at Pennar Fawr, Coed Maidie B Goddard and Cors Ian. All slightly different: gorse and birch with the odd bramble and conifer at Pennar Fawr; a large bramble patch at Coed Maidie and willow and birch in the bog at Cors Ian.

Into April we have become more constructive making paths/causeway out of some of the timber we have felled over the winter. We also made the most of the drier weather to do some work on the stream in Coed Penglanowen.
