Japanese Rose removal

Natural England have employed a contractor to remove Japanese Rose beds from the north of the Island This the third attempt to remove this rose, previous methods included hand digging out and chemical destruction.

The video link below was taken today and shows the machine in action, it appears to be clearing the area extremely efficiently but it only takes a small amount of root to remain and the plant is off again.

They have also took the opportunity to create three new Natterjack pond and enlarge existing ponds 100 and 101.
