Today we continued the task of removing invasive species of plant from the heath. We moved across to the top side of the heath which was a small victory in this ongoing task. The volunteers got stuck into the task with their usual gusto and cleared a really large area.

The photograph below show an area that has had no management carried out on it this year. It is easy to pick out Thistles, Willows, Silver Birch and assorted other species that are starting to dominate the heathland.

This next photograph shows the area that the volunteers worked on today. It is clear to see what an amazing job they have been doing.

We were also helped by the children from the Dales school who carried on the good work and kept the fire going whilst the volunteers had lunch.

Once again thank you to all involved for your hard work and dedication.
