Finishing Off

Tuesday, March 1st 2016

Today the volunteers returned to the woodland trail where we were a few weeks ago to finish off removing the straggly Hawthorns.   After the rain, and yesterday’s cold temperatures, the day was very mild with the sun making a welcome appearance too.   The volunteers, joined by the Dales School around lunchtime, worked hard felling, sawing and lopping up the felled trees that were then burnt on a bonfire.

Out on the Wetland a Frog was spotted, and our first sightings of frog spawn have been noted on the Reserve at the weekend.

Thank you everyone who came out today, your hard work is much appreciated.
