September Summary 2023

05 Sep 2023

Hello B[L]OG Friends …

WOW! That month whizzed by like a hunting swift. You might be interested in some statistics from my solo tree-pulling for the month. Or maybe not!

For me, keeping these numbers is a way of staying motivated in the face of such a ginormous task.

903 trees removed of which -

530 were Birch trees (59%)

349 were Norway Spruce (39%)

Other species were Scots Pine, Sitka and Rowan.

I spent 28.5 hours on the Moss on 21 different days.

Favourite wildlife encounter: 4 snipe and a Fox Moth caterpillar.

Least comfortable moments: red ants up my sleeve spraying formic acid.
