The Wood Pile

Wednesday 9th May 2012

To tidy an unsightly bend in the track near the Bothy, we moved scattered logs and other bits of timber to build log piles in the nearby woods, creating a habitat that should encourage invertebrates. The move did disturb a few toads and other creatures, but we did our best to ensure they still had the protection of a suitable home. Many of the logs were already well rotted and carried the fruiting heads of a number of fungi.
