Last day coppicing in 2009

It may be New Year's Eve, but we were still working in the woods. Paul and his daughter Emily came up in the afternoon to join in, so we made pretty good progress, especially considering we didn't make a very early start! We left a number of logs lying around for me to split tomorrow and put into a rack - we couldn't do it today as we didn't have post driver there.
Here's a before and after view of the area we cleared today:
The view back up the hill gives us a sense of progress now:
We departed just as some rain started, leaving a big fire going, which will hopefully still be burning in 2010 when we return...
