Make Hay While the Sun Shines

Thursday, September 24th 2015

Today was a beautiful autumn day, a good day for our new Reserve Manager - Lisa to start on. Lisa has been working in Dumfries & Galloway for the last 7 years but has returned to her native Yorkshire and is looking forward to working with Matt and the volunteers in maintaining Foxglove as the fantastic reserve it is.

Problems with the live feed cameras that display in the visitor centre involved a bit of detective work for Matt, John and Mike, tracing and checking cables and swapping /replacing batteries.

Last week the volunteers cut the meadows, so they needed raking and the sward removing to keep the nutrient levels low in order to keep it botanically rich. Stacey and Lisa were joined by volunteers and members of the Youth Justice Service.

I think everyone enjoyed being out in the sunshine.

Thanks to all who helped today, their skills and enthusiasm are much appreciated.
