Killynether Coppicing

Yet another terrific day was spent by fifteen or twenty of us today at Killynether Wood, near Scrabo, County Down.

We were coppicing an area which was last coppiced eight years ago; hence re-growth has been successful.

We were joined today by some experienced coppicing woodsmen and others.

There was a fair amount of logs, so we all shared them and brought them home for fires.

I had the usual cheese & onion sandwiches today.

We are having an informal Christmas party at the Old School-house later in December; and Phil has generously offered to provide a game pie, complete with guinea-fowl and rabbit.
