A Busy Tuesday

Tuesday, September 22nd 2015

The volunteers were hard at it again today completing a number of jobs around the reserve. Some set out with strimmers and started cutting some of our smaller meadows. Although the tractor was used for the big meadow, it is too large to get into the smaller areas so these need to be done by hand.

Meanwhile, other volunteers headed up into the woodlands to cut down all the Sycamore shoots that have grown up over the last year and are shading the sunlight from plants on the woodland floor. The Dales School came to help out for a while before lunch.

Matt spent some time checking the trees in the area and felled a few that were starting to look unstable.

Thanks to everyone who helped out today.
