Team Tuesday

Tuesday, March 10th 2015

Work began on the wetland today cutting back rushes and Gorse in preparation for the breeding season. Ken and Eddie have made a fantastic start here and over the next week the rest of the wetland will be cut. This work helps to reduce the dominance of rushes through the ground flora, as well as providing good views across the water from the hide.

The rest of the Tuesday volunteers continued clearing Gorse from the moorland in beautiful spring sunshine.

John made the most of the fine weather finding a comfortable hideaway for lunch.

By early afternoon this had been completed and we focused our efforts on a patch of nearby woodland, where invasive Silver Birch saplings were removed and Holly trees thinned out, allowing the trees more space and light to grow as they mature.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered and helped us to improve these habitats today!
