Volunteers from the Lower Mole Countryside Trust assisted by own own volunteers visited Rye Meadows on Tuesday to Thursday 7th to 9th October 2014 to clear blackthorn and hawthorn from the banks of the Rye Brook. Bramble and other scrub was also removed to let more light into the Brook.
Local birdlife obviously approved of the work as we saw a kingfisher exploring the stream now open for his fishing rights!
The photographs show the volunteers hard at work clearing the banks. Established trees were left in place and some coppicing took place where re-growth will occur over the next few years.
