A Busy Day

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

This morning the volunteers got stuck into the task of clearing out a couple of our net rides that had become overgrown. We pollard the trees surrounding the net rides to a height of approximately six foot. This increases the effectiveness of the net rides as it ensures that the vegetation is at a similar height to the mist nets. It is hard work but makes a massive difference and is really appreciated by the bird ringers.

This afternoon with the help of the students from the Dales School we cleared the brash from the morning session of cutting and then continued the work of clearing invasive species from the heath.

Whilst this was going on a few of our regular volunteers were out and about around the reserve strimming the sides of the paths and mowing the lawns. We got through an amazing amount of work today and would like to thank everyone who came to help.
