Mowing the Viewpoint


Mowing the long grass at the Viewpoint near posts 7 & 8 at the last work morning, Sunday 8th May.
  
Each scyther has his or her own style.


Every five minutes or so the blade has to be honed.  
(Despite appearances Eric is not really trying to cut Will's legs from under him)


Then comes the raking up.
  

Andy and Allan made many journeys with a load of grass

But the mowers produced ever more. 


Thirsty work 


But the effort gives a sense of achievement.


We have started mowing earlier this year so we hope to keep on top of the job.  If possible we shall get more areas mown so that we increase the short grass habitat as well as the long grass.
