What a lot of Seed!

Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Our Tuesday volunteers have been very busy today tackling a range of tasks. Over the weekend we had received a large delivery of bird seed mixture from a generous local farmer. This is a mixture of seeds and chaff from his harvest and we use it in our wooden hoppers. Birds such as Bullfinches are particularly keen on it. The seed arrived in eight large builders sacks.

These sacks have to be broken down into smaller more manageable loads which is a dirty and dusty job. Our volunteers proved to be very efficient at this, and before long, all the seed was bagged, transported to our seed store and neatly stacked for use during the rest of the year. 

Meanwhile, some of our other volunteers headed out onto the Moor to rake up the hay that was cut last week, ready to be baled and taken away. Afterwards we continued a task we began last week; cutting down overhanging branches along Risedale Beck.

Everyone worked very hard indeed today and it was much appreciated.
