Holme Pierrepont - maintenance session

Nine of us met for an afternoon at HPP yesterday for a few hours of habitat management. With no control over the water levels we are fighting something of a losing battle against the encroaching willow and birch scrub, but at least we can keep it down to net height. The weather was a bit grim, but we did really well and particular thanks must go to Gordon for coming along with his chainsaw and George. We even saw a few birds with Red-crested Pochard and Bittern both seen.
