March but still a cool cloudy Saturday morning at Oakwell Hall.
Luddites led by Jim met Dan the Oakwell contact who led us to the Willow plantation.
Our task was to cut down a perimeter of older willows that had grown too big and to
burn them on a bonfire.
John and David working site.  
This Robin watched us working coming close to see what might be disturbed to eat. Willow site cleard with a large stack of cut willows over to the right.
The willows proved to be hard to burn and so they have been left to dry out.
