A very big thank you to Phillippa Morrison-Price and her band of volunteers for cutting back the south margin of Pheasant Field. Managing these dense thickets of bramble is fundamental to providing habitat for nesting birds and small mammals and at the same time preventing further encroachment on the grasses and wildflowers in the main meadow. The South Downs National Park has been of immense help to us in planning for habitat and biodiversity in Lag Wood and Pheasant Field. Without the enthusiasm, guidance and practical help of rangers like Phillippa, we would not have the project we have today. We had a great day working with the volunteers on Tuesday.
