A Pathfinders Day

Wednesday, November 16th 2016

What a contrast to yesterday’s mild weather! I drove down the track this morning in heavy rain, and a fair gust of wind against me. My first thoughts were how the weather would affect the work party coming in today. On arrival I was disappointed at the moth trap catch from last night, having only 6 moths in total for the team to record. This below is a Scarce Umber.

Luckily the rain stopped as the ‘Help For Heroes’ Pathfinders work party arrived at 10am, leaving clear skies and just the wind to contend with. After a greeting, cup of tea, and an intro to the reserve we were able to escape the bulk of the wind as we popped unwanted saplings from Risedale Beck.

This was a continuation of the habitat work we were doing along the beck on the Worky Day recently.

After a lunch, presentation and a guided tour of the reserve the Pathfinders left us about 3pm.

Back at the Field Centre all the entries from the Calendar Competition were being put on the display boards for folk to look at. The winning photographers have been notified, thank you to all that took part.

Thanks also to our merry band of volunteers, and Pathfinders, who helped out today with the various tasks.
