Chilston tidy - HCC volunteer event

Only 1 person braved the cold and early drizzle to join Stu on this volunteer event, and that was Peta. It was a damp squib with regards to wildlife too - the only highlight being a dormant dung beetle exposed when we were digging up an old metal cylinder that was protruding rather "iffily" from the ground (very livestock unfriendly).

An old drainage pipe was also unearthed from the same excavation both items related to the nearby foundations of what was once a building. The remainder of the day was spent removing other debris e.g. bricks buried in the entrance, barbed wire strands, the lid of an oil drum and other assorted dumped items / rubbish, why do people think it is OK to leave a soiled nappy here?

As more work is still needed here Stu has agreed to return and I take the larger items to the tip and to do some general site maintenance. Hopefully there will be more people helping in the December event. Thanks to Peta and Stu for all the work they did in Chilston.
