Fungi and Tree Removing

Tuesday, September 27th 2016

The Tuesday Volunteers had a busy day. Colin set to work edging the paths around the field centre which now looks much tidier.

The rest of the volunteers headed down the scrapes to remove small sapling trees from the area. Some of them had quite large roots and took a lot of manpower.

Elsewhere on the reserve the Dales School helped out by raking up the rest of the hay that still needed to be removed.

This was then loaded into the trailer and carted away. Some strimming was also done and the feeders filled. At lunchtime Stacey gave a presentation about her penguin work in Antarctica as this is her last week with us.

Whilst out and about we found some lovely fungi today, the different colours and shapes are incredible. Here are just a few of them. This is Coral Tuft.

This is Candle Snuff.

This is Common Puffball.

 And finally, Scarlet Waxcap. 

Thanks to everyone who helped out today.  We achieved a lot.
