Unexpected Visitors

Thursday, September 11th 2014

As we drove into Foxglove this morning we were greeted by a couple of sheep who had decided that the grass was greener on our side of the fence and popped over to tuck in. It took a bit of gentle persuasion and the help of our early arrival volunteers, but we managed to herd them all the way from the drive back up to the moorland and onto the training area from where they came.

Luckily they helped us identify an area of fence that needed a little attention and after a well deserved cup of tea for the sheep rustling volunteers this was swiftly fixed.

After the excitement of early morning we went back out onto the heath and the volunteers worked diligently all day continuing the invasive species removal.

The bottom side of the heath is now looking great so a big thank you to everyone who has been involved in this task, we know its hard work but we do really appreciate the effort that you have put in.
