Walloping Willows on Wasp Island at Horsbere Brook from 10:00 to 12:00
Friday 31st January
Parking: Suggested parking is in the car park at the provided coords, there is a footbridge to take you over to Horsbere. Or if there is space you can park by the gates leading in to the brook, alternative parking.
Where: We will meet on the track and then make our way to the pond.
What: Cutting back the regrowth of the willows on wasp island, clearing the regrowth on the other islands and burning our off cuts.
Equipment: The ranger will be providing a boat to access what is known as wasp island, which is in the middle of the nature reserve. We are hoping the wasps will be dormant this time of year!
There are sections in the water where you would be able to stand up, however, the long ditches that run around the island would make the water too deep.
Please bring your own buoyancy aid/life jacket if you have one and ensure you are wearing old clothes, wellies are also suggested as the island will also be under some water.
How: The Countryside Ranger will be there providing the necessary tools and guidance, bring your own gloves if you prefer.
