A Whiter Shade of Pale

Tuesday, December 15th 2015

Another misty day greeted us, deepening as the day continued. The volunteers were working out on the moor, cutting and burning the gorse that is encroaching upon the path, continuing the work we started last week. The smoke from the fire melted seamlessly into the murk, the volunteers, gorse bushes and trees were silhouetted against the horizon.

In the early afternoon, we were joined by the Dales School, who assisted us with the task.


We rescued a Gorse Shield Bug from the flames, which was relocated safely, further out on the moor. 

These eggs were also found at the base of some Gorse, we wondered if they belonged to a species of Spider, any ideas anyone?

A big thank you to all who came out on such a dismal day, we cleared another sizeable section, well done everyone.
