Team Tuesday

Wednesday, September 10th 2014

Tuesday volunteers were out again in force to improve the habitats on your favourite local nature reserve. A visitor who has a wildflower meadow in the Dales has very kindly collected some Yellow Rattle and Oxeye Daisy seed to help improve our middle moor meadow. Now the grass has been cut and removed the area was ready for seed to be sown. The Dexter Cattle will be moved into this area. As they walk around and feed they will help to bed the seeds in allowing them to germinate and produce a beautiful wildflower meadow next summer.

The rest of the volunteers again found themselves working on the heathland. We spent the morning cutting invasive Willow, Silver Birch and Gorse. By lunch the area was much improved and once again resembled a heathland.

We are very grateful for all of the effort that has been put into this task over the past few weeks, it has been hard work but the results speak for themselves.

Thank you again to everyone who helped out on the reserve yesterday and to Colin for the kind donation of the wildflower seeds.
