Sunny Spells

Wednesday, May 15th 2013

Weeding out tree tubes was the main volunteer task yesterday. This job is vital to the success of the young trees that have been planted to replace the old Sitka Spruce block.

Tree Tubes

This is a rare opportunity for everyone to carry out a summer task as one large group.

There are hundreds of saplings to check on the reserve and the job will be ongoing all summer!

The ground flora seems to be thriving in the increased amount of sunlight reaching the floor. This Primrose is one of the best specimens out in flower this month.

The ground in this clear fell area is covered in Foxglove leaves and will be quite a sight when the plants flower later in the year.

Harrogate U3A Naturalists ventured out in the sunny spells on a guided walk and saw Early Purple Orchids, Bogbean and Bluebells on their tour.
