Rhododendron Removal At Ennerdale

Today we were back with the Wild Ennerdale volunteers removing rhododendron from near Moss Dub. There wasn't enough room for everyone in the Forestry Commission vehicles so we drove to Irish bridge & walked to the worksite. We just took Crag as we feared Bess would just lie in the tarn at Moss Dub or the River Liza all day. They have removed the concrete pipe bridge over Woundell Beck & replaced it with a foot bridge This is the first time we have walked over it, a lot of effort has gone into its construction & in building the abutments Looking downstream to where the old bridge was
Starling Dodd from our worksite
Some interesting fungi here
Moss Dub
The green forest track
At the end of the day it all has to be removed from the area
