16th March Work

Here's the Plan ...

Today’s plan is to finish mapping the extensive quarrying on the National Trust property on the south hillside.  The terrain is more difficult than the top of the hillfort and requires the occasional use of a machete to clear the way.  Luckily, Chris Atkinson’s Territorial Army experience has trained him in various assault tactics with which to handle the undergrowth.

This is the first time this feature of the site has been mapped, and our work should help in future conservation efforts.

I caught a glimpse of a stoat or ermine today as it ran into the scrub on the side of the hill fort.  Just one of the pleasures of being at Eaton Camp.
