Wow, I hadn’t expected the scrub and gorse removal [as promised by Ben Habgood, Surrey Wildlife Trust ranger] alongside the track by Folly Bog to be done around the Christmas period.
On a short constitutional walk yesterday I came by the area cleared of scrub. A huge and worthwhile improvement. The view over Folly Bog is restored. No longer a walk through a corridor of encroaching gorse, alder, willow, and grasses blocking the view over the bog. I’ve evidence that this was last done in 2010. Amazing how fast nature can take over.
Here’s my photo of 2010 showing the machinery, then two on my walk yesterday.
