Habitat Makeover

Tuesday, September 11th 2012

The Tuesday volunteers continued to remove scrub from the heathland. Although a tedious task, the benefits to the wildlife will be significant.

Heathland work

A huge amount of invasive Silver Birch and Gorse were cut down.

Almost finished

Students from the Dales School helped out too and by late afternoon this patch of heather was looking fantastic.

Here are the photos from yesterday 'zoomed in' so that it is easier to make out the swimming squirrel!
