Wolf’s MOT in Coed y Bleiddiau
On a dry and frosty February morning I joined Doug and Gareth to tidy up the wolf before spring and the hordes of visitors arrive. All the upward sprouting shoots of growth, looking as though someone had startled the wolf, were pliable enough to weave back into the structure. Shaggy bristles around the jaws were lopped off.
Worryingly there are quite a few strands of dead wood, particularly on the end of the tail. Do we need to call in the expert? To help Beryl, the willow sculptor from Llanidloes, decide what needs doing we made a film clip so she could see the severity of the problem.
