Cardiff Friday Morning Project Brynfedw Woods Friday 13th Part 2...

We returned again to Brynfedw Woods in Llanedeyrn on this cloudy friday 13th. Our plan was to continue from last Friday's work but moving a little deeper into these woods (see map).

We pulled out more carpets, cables, bits of motorbikes, cars, oil cans, drinks cans, bikes, kitchens, wooden school desk, Xbox chair, wheels and tyres, 1 Volleyball net pole (plus concrete base), blinds and rails and an old tent. Interestingly, we saw more evidence of the rare, but locally abundant Cider Drinking Woodcreeper (Homo sapiens ssp. whitestormii) in the same hideaway spot as last week. It is just like finding the tell tale signs of dormouse knawed hazel nuts; exciting, but not conclusive. Only by trap photography will we find conclusive proof of this reclusive and frugal woodland species.

Altogether, we collected 17 bags of rubbish of which 4 were recycling. We will return here soon, to finish the job....
