What makes a typical ranger day in North Cornwall? In the winter, much of our time can be spent tidying up after bad weather. After a morning spent litter picking at our beaches, we went off to investigate a reported tree which had blown down in the Tidna valley. To our slight surprise it turned out to be a fairly mature sycamore which was blocking the footpath. It took an afternoon of chainsawing and hard work to make the area safe, and clear the path. All of this is part of the natural woodland cycle and rather than remove the wood it was left as habitat piles for invertebrates and fungi.
