I have spent the day with National Trust staff and volunteers at Killynether Wood, near Newtownards, County Down.
Today we were undertaking maintenance work at a coppice plantation, which necessitated lighting a bonfire and burning surplus branches.
It was also an opportunity to get up to date with the others.
I had my usual cheese & onion sandwiches for lunch.
There were about eight of us. We began at 9am and finished at 4pm this afternoon.
