Summer Antics

Tuesday, July 9th 2013

Volunteers spent the day completing varied and interesting tasks in balmy summer temperatures (a far cry from those experienced by the Cape Wrath team last week).  Paths were strimmed and overhanging branches were pruned back.  Invasive New Zealand Pondweed was also removed from some of the pools close to the Field Centre.  A team also worked to finish installing the new boardwalks behind the scrapes.

Sections were wired to make them less slippery in wet weather.

Water Voles have been seen in the Scrapes today and yesterday, all the apple that was left out for them last night was gone by the time we were back in this morning.  On the butterfly walk this morning over 60 Ringlets were recorded as well as high numbers of Speckled Wood - the best result so far this season!
