Hurricane Damage in Bridgend Woods

Some of the trees that have blown over are very large indeed

They have not always blown over in exactly convenient locations.  This one is lying across the River Sorn.

The paths are still blocked in lots of places.  A saw would have been handy....

In some places it seems that there are more trees blown down than left standing....
The full hurricane that Islay experienced last week has brought down literally hundreds of trees in Bridgend Woods.  The work of clearing them from the paths is well under way (although is far from complete...).  The work of clearing them from the main body of the woods will of course take much longer.  We must hope that the work is not done too efficiently as there are few things better for improving biodiversity than lots of fallen timber...
