Scrub Clearing At Pepperbox Hill – 2012

We were back at the National Trust nature reserve of Pepperbox Hill for the last time this season.  Again we were cutting back encroaching hawthorn, blackberry and privet  from grassland and from around juniper.  Some medium sized ash trees were also felled to reduce shading of the grass.

Thankfully it was a much warmer day than last time with dog violets in bloom in sheltered spots and a sense of approaching Spring in the air.
