Toasting marshmallows

Toasting marshmallows

 
The new Buriton volunteers met for the second time last weekend to carry out more work in the Chalk Pits Local Nature Reserve. This involved cutting back a lot of  dogwood and ash saplings on an area which was becoming overgrown.
The cut material was used to make deadwood habitat piles and the surplus burnt. The fire proved very welcome on what was a freezing day and the  workers had brought along marshmallows to toast and potatoes to roast.
